Back Injuries - Disability Claim

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.

Back Injury

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.

Facts & Figures - Back Injury

Most people will experience the pain of a back injury at some point in their lives. This problem is usually caused by sudden damage or stress to the back or by gradual wear over years. The lower region, which includes the lumbar spine, is the most commonly injured. Two of the more common forms of back injury are Degenerative Disc Disease and a herniated disc. Degenerative Disc Disease refers to progressive damage done to a specific disc in one’s back. While the disc itself may degenerate, the pain of the injury often becomes more manageable over time. A herniated disc occurs when a disc breaks or bulges out of the spine, removing its support from the vertebrae. Symptoms of back injury usually include pain and swelling, as well as numbness or weakness.

Fact: Most back injuries occur between the ages of 20 and 50.

Fact: Back pain that starts over the age of 50 is more likely to have a serious underlying cause.
