Maximum medical improvement is the point when you are as good as you are going to get. You have healed partially at least, and you are not getting any better. When you have an injury you start your medical care and you improve. As you receive medical care you get better. If you do not improve fully, your doctor will try something else. At some point your doctor will conclude that he or she has tried everything and you have reached your maximum medical improvment. At this point, your medical condition can be fully evaluated. If you have not fully healed, then your doctor can perform an assessment to determine whether your injury is permanent in nature. If you do have a permanent injury, your doctor can determine what percentage, if any, loss you have to that body part. For example, a 25% loss to the back.
