There are millions of Americans who suffer from back pain. For many, back pain is just part of getting older. However, for some people back and joint impairments can be debilitating disabilities – leaving them unable to work.
Back pain is a pretty general term, but the cause of back pain can come from a number of different conditions. A ruptured or herniated disc can be especially painful, and there isn’t always a valid treatment option for some people who are suffering from one of these conditions. Degenerative disc disease can be even worse, as in most cases the condition not only never gets better – it will continue to get worse.
The inability to work due to a back condition that causes excessive pain can leave a Los Angeles resident searching for answers on how they will be able to support their family. For some, one part of the answer might be to apply for Social Security Disability benefits.
At our firm we have helped many people who are suffering from back pain due to a medical condition successfully apply for SSD benefits. The most important thing to remember, however, is that the initial application for benefits must be strong – not a single detail should be left out. Because so many people suffer from back pain on a daily basis, but are still able to work, the screeners with the Social Security Administration may have an inherent bias against applicants with one of these conditions. Our attorneys attempt to help our clients put together the best application possible.
