Social Security Disability for Back and Neck Injuries

Seeking SSDI Benefits for Back & Neck Problems

Nearly everyone, at some point in his or her life, will experience a form of back or neck pain. In fact, the Mayo Clinic has estimated that 4 out of 5 people will experience low back pain at least once in their lives. Usually the pain and discomfort is minor and will subside over time with proper rest and exercise. However, because the spine is the main component of the back and neck regions of the body, any injuries sustained in this area can affect a wide range of other normal body functions.

Call our Virginia social security lawyers at (855) 880-8163 if you want to learn more about your options.

Causes of Back & Neck Problems

When any of the 30-plus vertebrae, intervertebral disks, nerves, muscles, tendons or ligaments in the backbone become injured or irritated, the damage can lead to discomfort or pain.

Some of the most common causes of these types of injuries include:

  • Improper lifting or straining
  • Automobile accidents
  • Slips and falls
  • Bulging or herniated disks
  • Degenerative disk disease
  • Abnormal spinal structures
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cancer or infection in the spine
  • Sports injuries
  • Age
  • Arthritis
  • Poor posture
  • Weak abdominal muscles
  • Stress
  • Improper sleeping positions
  • Medical malpractice

Effects of Back & Neck Problems

Back and neck injuries can make it difficult or even impossible for a person to perform normal daily functions or hold down a job.

People can experience symptoms such as:

  • Paralysis
  • Persistent, unbearable pain in different parts of the body
  • Tingling sensations or numbness
  • Bladder or bowel incontinence
  • Fever or chills
  • Infections
  • Weakened muscles



Treatment Options for Back & Neck Problems

Unfortunately, once a person has experienced back or neck pain, it can easily recur later in life.

Many people may be surprised to learn that surgery is not usually the answer in helping correct this type of pain. Instead, treatment options often include:

  • Pain medications
  • Exercises to strengthen the abdominal and back muscles
  • Heat and cold wraps
  • Spinal manipulation
  • Stress management
  • Pain control methodologies
  • Stretching exercises
  • Proper posture training for sitting, standing and sleeping

If a back or neck injury has left a debilitating mark on your life, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) may be available to help you improve your quality of life.
