Are You Unable to Work Because of Back Pain?
At some point in their lives, most people will experience back, neck or joint pain. For some people, this pain will be more than a mild, temporary ache. Back pain, neck pain and other musculoskeletal problems can be severe, chronic and so debilitating that the sufferer is unable to continue working.
If you suffer from this type of severe pain, you may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. The Rochester, NY Law Offices of Kenneth Hiller, PLLC, helps people in Rochester, NY apply for SSD and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits when they can no longer work because of severe neck, back or joint pain.
Types of Back, Neck and Spinal Conditions
Back and neck pain can be difficult to treat because a wide range of conditions can cause the pain. Illnesses and conditions that can lead to a disability determination include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Nerve impingement
- Herniated disks and bulging disks
- Degenerative arthritis
In addition to causing severe and chronic back and neck pain, a spine injury or back injury can cause severe arm or leg pain. Sitting or standing can become difficult, as can lifting objects of any significant weight. With limits like these, you may not be able to hold a full-time job. If you are in this situation, we may be able to help you obtain federal disability benefits.
