MMI and ratings question
#1
Rolleyes 
State of Alabama. I had surgery back in Feb on my shoulder. I had a full tear of the rotator cuff , tore lebrun, and tore bicep. They put 4 anchors in. I have done therapy and also a FCE. I go for my results tomorrow. My question is are all 3 given seperate ratings? I can see the rotator cuff and lebrun being the shoulder but the bicep is the arm. Thanks in advance for any input.

All body parts damaged by the injury are rated for permanent impairment. The AMA rating guide then provides instructions for combining them into a single whole body rating.

Thank you for your response. I did post my state at the start of my post. Alabama is where I live.
So all 3 will be combined into 1 rating. Do they factor in strength loss? When I done my FCE my right arm is weaker now than my left. I'm right hand dominant. Thanks again.

The AMA GUIDES do provide ratings for atrophy and weakness.
Your doctor should have a copy of the guidelines and let your review them or provide information on the rating process.
