I’ll take a crack at doing this the limited information way.
First off, good for you switching to case fee and charging what you are worth. Also, good for you for wanting to further investigate how accurate your assessment was.
Zero motion of the low back is usually a real big degenerative problem or a lumbar scoliosis. Almost never predominantly adhesion. You need to individually assess his adhesion and other diagnoses, then assign a percentage to each. That is what you base your report of findings on.
You can relax a little bit, because this is an estimate. It WILL vary.
Even if you can’t treat the low back there are other regions that are limited. Treatment there should help too.
Looking forward to seeing the rest of the details.
