A). Evaluate the patient and then decide to continue with treatment or refer out for imaging B).

Answer:

B). Refer patient out prior to examining as she fits the need for a radiograph via Canadian C-spine rules Given the Canadian C-spine rules, the patient does not require immediate imaging given her age, paresthesias in both extremities, mechanism of injury, nor delayed onset of pain; however, she requires imaging given the inability to rotate the neck actively 45 degrees bilaterally. In order to be within the PT's scope of practice, and practice safely, the patient should be referred out for imaging prior to continuing with the full evaluation or any treatment to rule out potential fracture.

Answer:

A). Sarah is going to the fair and cannot wait to get on the ferris wheel; she wants to be the first one in line. A semi colon is the best option for this sentence, unless we were to split up the sentence into two separate sentences separated by a period. A semi colon is used between 2 independent clauses.
