Back Injuries – Disability Claim
A back injury can place a huge burden on the injured party and his or her family. Back injuries can be extremely debilitating and limiting and require ongoing medical assistance. Herniated discs and degenerative disc disease are two common forms of back injury that can lead to disabling conditions and qualify an employee or business owner for disability benefits.
Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) is a disease that slowly deteriorates the spine and can cause severe pain and limitations. When degenerative disc disease takes its course, the structure of the spinal cord weakens and the patient loses functionality. As the condition worsens, the spine continues to weaken under the weight of the body, and disc herniation can result. Patients may experience ongoing lower back pain and limited range of motion. Lifting, exercise and other strenuous activities become painful and difficult. Patients suspected of having degenerative disc disease may need to undergo MRI, CT Scan, Myelogram, or possibly Discography tests.
A herniated disc occurs when the inner core of a spinal disc pushes back into the spine, putting pressure on the nerve and resulting in pain and discomfort. Many patients suffering from a herniated disc will undergo surgery to relieve the imposing disc. The effects of a herniated disc can be unbearable, but as medical science makes improvements in treatment more and more insurance companies are denying claims for long-term disability.
