Well Leg Raise Test
The Well Leg Raise Test is used to detect the presence of radicular pain in the symptomatic limb. This test is also called the Fajersztajn Test.
With the patient in the supine position, raise the non-symptomatic limb while maintaining knee extension, and ask the patient to indicate if the pain is reproduced or exacerbated in the symptomatic limb. If so, the test is considered positive and indicates nerve root irritation involving the opposite side.
