Extract

DR SHIP: Mr M is a 46-year-old man who has experienced physical and emotional symptoms following a recent motor vehicle collision. He lives with his wife near Boston and works as an artist. He has managed care insurance.

Mr M's history includes 3 unrelated motor vehicle collisions. The first occurred overseas in December 1999. At that time, he was a backseat passenger in a taxicab struck by another vehicle. He had a thoracic compression fracture and required a prolonged course of rehabilitation. He recovered from this event except for some back and neck spasms. In June 2001, Mr M was a belted driver when his car was rear-ended. His neck and back pain and spasms returned, and he returned to physical therapy. In late January 2002, he was a belted front-seat passenger in a car struck head-on by another vehicle. The air bag deployed. He sustained 3 fractured ribs and multiple contusions; his back and neck pain returned.
