Lumbar Stenosis Disability Attorneys
We Can Help with Your Lumbar Stenosis Claim – Nationwide
Lumbar stenosis occurs when your spinal canal narrows, compressing the nerves in your spinal cord and causing back pain. Most often, lumbar stenosis is a degenerative condition that affects people aged 50 and older. Nevertheless, the condition can affect younger people, as well, especially if they are dealing with other medical conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
Changes may appear on X-rays long before you have symptoms. Once you have symptoms, however, you may have difficulty fulfilling the duties of your occupation. Many employees and self-employed professionals have disability insurance for this exact kind of situation.
If you need help recovering disability benefits from your insurance company, Dabdoub Law Firm is here to help.

What Are the Symptoms of Lumbar Stenosis?
The most prominent symptoms of lumbar stenosis are back pain and sciatica – a burning pain going into the buttocks and down the leg.
Other symptoms of lumbar stenosis include:
- Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the legs
- “Pins and needles” in the buttocks, legs, or feet
- Cramping in the calves, especially when walking
- Loss of feeling in the feet
- Sexual dysfunction
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Numbness between your legs and inner thighs
- Severe pain and weakness in one or both legs
People with lumbar stenosis often have trouble getting out of chairs or walking, particularly for long periods of time. In many cases, the pain improves when patients bend forward, sit, or lie down.
Being unable to stand or walk for long periods of time can prevent many workers from doing their jobs. For this reason, people with lumbar stenosis often file short-term or long-term disability claims.
If you need time to seek treatment for lumbar stenosis or worry you will not be able to return to work before you retire, Dabdoub Law Firm can help. Let us handle your disability insurance claim, so you can focus on feeling better.
