Social Security Disability Insurance – Degenerative Disc Disease and Back Pain

One of the most common conditions that is asserted in Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) applications is for Degenerative Disc Disease and Back Pain.  Despite the fact that many claims are made based on this impairment these cases can be hard to win.

The probability of getting approved for SSDI benefits is more challenging the younger an applicant is with people under 40 particularly unlikely to be approved.

One of the challenging aspects of gaining disability benefits for back pain and related conditions is the fact that some level of back pain is quite common in individuals.

As people age there is a natural change and degradation of bones and joints and pack pain is one of the most common results.  So, a main consideration when evaluating an application for back pain or similar conditions is the degree to which the applicant is impaired.

Examiners considering an application for degenerative disc disease or back pain will be looking to see empirical medical evidence that shows severe impairment by the condition.

It is good for an applicant to receive regular medical treatment not only to manage the condition but also to provide clear evidence of the particular condition for the SSDI application.
