Summary
This easy-to-use manual is a timesaving guide to assigning musculoskeletal impairment ratings for worker's compensation, personal injury, and disability claims. It follows most of the principles in the American Medical Association's Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment and presents these guidelines in quick-reference tabular format for busy clinicians. Section One summarizes the procedures and terminology of impairment rating. Section Two contains rating tables for the upper extremity, lower extremity, spine, pelvis, skin, and pain. Appendices include tables for converting ratings
