At the assessment do they expect you to perform exercises? If so what happens if you refuse because it would put you in pain?
Thanks everyone.

    Yes they do, if you're claiming for a physical disability. If you can't do something they ask you to do because it causes pain then you should tell them you can't and it and your reasons why.
