If you are using a version of mathematica that can Save or Export to (XHTML 
or XML) with MathML. Then I would start there. A while back I think I 
answered a post that was the converse of your question (Word to 
Mathematica). My suggestion involved Using OpenOffice as the intemediary. I 
think it is possible to go from Mathematica to Word. Where you would have 
problems are with the MathML, Graphics, and Equation Numbering and 
Footnotes. This is why I would stick to using open office
First OpenOffce is free. Download it if you don't have it already.

Save you Notebook as XHTML+MathML then open in OpenOffice Writer. If all 
goes well then export it as a Microsoft Word doc.

There are many things I am over looking but this would be my approach.
