Degenerative Disc Disease
Skilled & Experienced Disability Insurance Attorneys
While minor or infrequent back pain might just indicate a sore muscle or an awkward sleeping position from the night before, chronic back pain may be a sign of a more serious issue. Many Americans deal with degenerative disc disease, and some even count it as a part of their daily lives. However, back pain should never be taken lightly or left untreated. Degenerative disc disease negatively affects the discs that cushion the vertebra, causing excessive wear that may lead to chronic pain and a host of other issues.
If you suffer from degenerative disc disease, it is almost guaranteed that it will impact your ability to work. If you are unable to work for an extended period of time due to your degenerative disc disease, you may qualify for long-term disability benefits. Our disability law firm has represented hundreds of people who can no longer work due to chronic back pain.
About Degenerative Disc Disease
Our spines host a line of vertebrae, each of which is cushioned by discs. These cushioning buffers between our vertebrae help to prevent fragmentation and herniation, keeping the spine flexible and strong. Unfortunately, either due to aging, smoking, obesity, or the physical toll of labor, some adults may develop degenerative disc disease.
Degenerative disc disease causes the spinal discs to lose fluid, which causes the discs to thin and become less-effective in absorbing shocks and impacts. It can also make the discs less flexible. This disease will also make the spinal discs more prone to tears or cracks in the outer layers, causing spinal disc bulges or ruptured discs. Either of these conditions can be extremely painful and prevent you from working in any occupation. Our law firm has significant experience with long-term disability claims due to back pain conditions like degenerative disc disease.
