A really good place to begin looking for answers to your worker's compensation questions is in our book How to Avoid Becmming a Work Injury Horror Story.  In this case the worker's compensation physician is exactly correct.  Worker's compensation does not take into account your pain and suffering,  

Permanent partial disability is based on your ability to perform the job you have.  In other words, factors like range of motion or a loss of strength in your limbs are considered.  Both factors can be affected by the amount of pain you are in, but the rating is not based solely on pain and suffering.
