We had a great turnout for my talk last month at the Missouri Division of Workers' Compensation Annual Meeting. I spoke about impairment and disability, and how I assign disability ratings in my practice. I used videos to illustrate how I assess loss of strength and motion. Generally, most patients who have a surgically repaired rotator cuff or labral tear will have about 5% permanent loss of strength and motion in their shoulder. That means that, in the long term, they will get back about 95% of their "normal" strength and motion.
