Calculations based on American Medical Association's Guides of Permanent Impairment, Fifth & Sixth Edition.

Spine

This chapter provides criteria for evaluating permanent impairments of the spine, including how they affect an individual’s ability to perform activities of daily living (ADL). The spine consists of four regions: the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral vertebrae, and associated soft tissues including muscles, ligaments, disks, and neural elements. Impairments of the spine discussed in this chapter include lumbar, thoracic, cervical, spinal cord, and pelvic impairments.

The Upper Extremities

The Upper Extremities

This chapter provides criteria for evaluating permanent impairment due to impairments of the upper extremities (upper limbs). For evaluation purposes, the upper extremity is divided into 4 regions (distal to proximal):

  • Digits/Hand: including carpometacarpal (CMC), metacarpophalangeal (MCP), and interphalangeal (IP) joints.
  • Wrist: including distal radioulnar, radiocarpal, and ulnocarpal joints.
  • Elbow: including humeroulnar and proximal radioulnar joints.
  • Shoulder: including scapulothoracic, scapuloclavicular, sternoclavicular, and glenohumeral joints.

The Lower Extremities

This chapter provides criteria for evaluating permanent impairment due to impairments of the lower extremities (limbs). The lower extremity is divided into 3 regions (distal to proximal):

  • Foot and ankle: from the midshaft of the tibia to the tips of the toes.
  • Knee: from the midshaft of the femur to the midshaft of the tibia.
  • Hip: from the articular cartilage of the acetabulum to the mid shaft of the femur.
