Musculoskeletal system impairments involve a category of conditions that cause a loss of function in the joints. Musculoskeletal conditions can impair a person's ability to walk or use their hands and arms. Other conditions cause severe pain and weakness in the back and extremities. Such impairments can make it nearly impossible for a person to live a normal life or perform even the most basic job requirements.
If you are suffering from a musculoskeletal impairment that prevents you from working, you may be able to collect SSDI benefits. The process involved with obtaining benefits can be extremely complex, and it is important to have a Social Security Disability attorney representing you. At the Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, P.C., we help clients throughout New York state to secure the benefits they need when they are unable to work.
Fighting For Those Who Are Unable To Work
In the process of evaluating benefit claims for musculoskeletal disorders, the Social Security Administration will consider the effectiveness of orthotic devices, prosthetic devices and other forms of treatment on your condition. It is important to have a complete record of medical treatment and the impact it had. We will work with you to gather all of the necessary records so that we can present the strongest possible case on your behalf.
Some examples of the conditions Social Security evaluates in these cases include:
- Spinal stenosis
- Dysrhaphism such as spina bifida
- Tethered cord syndrome
- Degenerative disc disease
- Facet arthritis
- Vertebral fracture
- Severe fractures
