I have been doing some research in the 38CFR. under codes 5214 and 5215 there is no mention of supination/pronation for which is me chief complaint. there is a rating for "Any other position, except favorable" at 40/30% but if i go up to the fore arm/elbow there are a bunch of ratings pertaining to position of the hand. any idea what i should be looking at?
