Module Information

This module covers criteria for assessing the spine using both the methodology from Chapter 3 of the Guides, and also some modification to those criteria, which applies in some cases, and is contained in an additional prescribed methodology called the Spinal Impairment Guides Modification Document.

The module covers:

  • The key concepts that apply to assessment of Spinal Impairment.
  • The way in which some terms are given specific meaning within the Guides is different to that from clinical practice.
  • A logical path for consideration of Spinal Impairment, whether using the Guides, or with use of the Spinal Impairment Guides Modification Document.
  • Apportionment of Impairment: The approach required to disentangle what impairment may or may not be related to a compensable event.
