The longstanding of stubborn symptoms and the poor response to physical therapy constitute a real challenge to physical therapists and rehabilitation professionals. The purpose of the study was to provide clinicians with a new approach for evaluating complicated cases. The study subject was a 59 years old house wife who had long history of sufferance since she had a major car accident 22 years ago. The patient was evaluated by the expert in the field in collaboration with a medical doctor aiming to help the patient to overcome the sufferance. The new evaluation approach was satisfactory in addressing patientís needs and in resolving many of unexplained symptoms. It has been concluded that Total Assessment- Reassessment & Evaluation using bioKinesiologic (TAREK) approach is feasible but robust in providing clinicians with a systematic way for resolving longstanding complicated sufferance.
