Abstract
The medical community, the public, and the scientific literature often misunderstand the distinction between disability and impairment. This article defines the differences between disability and impairment. Furthermore, the ever-increasing numbers of people alleging disability and impairment necessitate a professional understanding of these terms, the scope of the problem, and the most effective means to deal with these issues in a medical practice.
