Maximum Medical Improvement: Pain

Key v. Liberty NW Ins. [9/13/01] 2001 MTWCC 53 Pain has both physiologic and mental components. Pain receptors are physical parts of the body and are necessary to the sensation of pain. Treatment which significantly reduces or controls pain, and thereby increases mobility, endurance, strength, alertness, and overall functioning is treatment which will materially improve a claimant's condition.
