Orthopedic Issues

Millions of Americans struggle with back, neck, knee and other orthopedic issues and conditions that limit their ability to work or perform other daily functions. Depending on the severity of the condition, these individuals may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Each year, many applicants are denied their claim because of issues or inconsistencies with their application.

At Manring & Farrell, our attorneys have assisted thousands of individuals throughout Ohio with similar medical conditions that they face, helping them in being approved for SSD and SSI benefits.

Neck And Back Injury, Orthopedic Issues And Social Security Disability And SSI

One of the most common reasons for an SSD or SSI claim to be denied is that the worker doesn't tell his or her doctor how bad the pain is and how limiting the problem has become. Because of this, the doctor cannot give an accurate diagnosis, or does not fully understand how bad the conditions or pain is for you. Social Security relies very heavily on the medical evidence, so it is important that you tell your doctor about all your symptoms, all your conditions, all your pain and all the side effects of your medications.

Orthopedic issues can include:

  • Back, neck, arm, leg, ankle, foot and hand injuries or pain
  • Degenerative disk disease
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Nerve damage
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Ruptured disks in the back or neck
  • Scarring from previous surgeries
  • Scoliosis
  • Stenosis
  • Arachnoiditis
  • Reflex sympathetic dystrophy or complex regional pain syndrome

These issues can show themselves as numbness or tingling in the area, acute pain, weakness in the legs or legs giving out, dropping things or other symptoms of masked pain. It is important that you tell your doctor all signs of the injury or any irregularities you have noticed.
