Screening: Both of these are just simple screening tests for neurological or muscular problems. An examination of your daughter's gait for example can identify balance and coordination problems.

Why not ?: If you go in for a checkup, the doc will run through a series of maneuvers to check out multiple organ systems where subtle findings could confirm or exclude problems. Thank Hillarycare/Obamacare for the lack of time to explain what s/he is doing.
