This easy-to-use handbook is a timesaving advisor to assigning musculoskeletal impairment scores for workers reimbursement, own harm, and incapacity claims. It follows many of the ideas within the American clinical Association's courses to the overview of everlasting Impairment and offers those directions in quick-reference tabular layout for busy clinicians. part One summarizes the approaches and terminology of impairment score. part includes score tables for the higher extremity, reduce extremity, backbone, pelvis, dermis, and soreness. Appendices comprise tables for changing scores from one physique half to a different and mixing a number of accidents.

O:p> Total active motion is determined as follows: ♦ = Total active flexio= n (MP flexion + PIP flexion + DIP flexion) - Total active extension lag (MP extension lag + PIP extension lag + DIP extension lag) =3D TAM Table of Contentso:p 37 38 Table of Contentso:p Di= gital Deformity Only the most severe of the deformities listed in Table 6-7 is to be rated, and it may be combined with a loss of motion rating for the digit. For a detailed, more specific discussion, see the AMA Guides. Im= pairment of Multiple Digits When multiple digits are impaired, ther= e is an exception to the combining rule.
We= akness Table of Contentso:p 33 34 Table of Contentso:p Weakness is generally not considered in impairment evaluation because it is too variable, and strength is under the individual's voluntary control. Additionally, the usual amount of weakness associated with a given condition is built into the tables and therefore sh= ould not be routinely included as a separate element in the compensation scheme. That is, it is understood that an individual with loss of motion of the ank= le will have some associated loss of strength, which is already included in the assigned rating.
Each digit is converted to its relative value to the hand (Table 6-8) and then added. That total figure may then be combined with ot= her impairments. 30<= /o:p> Lo= ss of Motion for Other Upper Extremity Body Areas Wr= ist The wrist has two functional units: flexion-extension and radial-ulnar deviation (<= span class=3Dlk1>Table 6-9). These impairments are a= dded. If the resting position of the hand is = in a position deviated from neutral such that the range of motion is in a less functional arc, the impairment ratings for radial-ulna= r deviation should be increased.
