What Back Problems Qualify for Disability?

Spinal conditions that may qualify for Social Security disability benefits include:

  • Degenerative discs
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Arachnoiditis
  • Spondylitis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Nerve root compression
  • Herniated discs
  • Scoliosis
  • Spondylolisthesis

In order for your back problem to qualify you for Social Security disability benefits, you will need to prove that you have a "medically determinable" impairment that lasts for a minimum of one year. By obtaining medical documents, such as x-rays, MRIs, and doctors' notes, you can show that your back pain is caused by a physical abnormality of your spine.

The Social Security Administration will only approve the most severe back pain cases. The claimant's objective symptoms will be assessed to see whether they match the requirements for impairment. The administration will evaluate your functional limitations to see what type of work you could perform. In addition, your credibility will be examined.

Scoliosis & Social Security Disability

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature in the spine that can cause the spine to have a "C" or "S" shape. While some people live with this condition without any issues, it can cause life-altering issues for others. Symptoms such as trouble breathing, nerve damage, and persistent back pain can mean that an individual is not able to work. In this case, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Our firm wants to help you secure the benefits you are entitled to! Reach out to us today if you are having difficulties with your claim or are unsure how to get started.

Evaluating Your Functional Limitations

Functional limitations are actions that you cannot perform as a result of your back problem. If your functional limitations are severe enough, you may be able to receive disability benefits. You will need to have these limitations documented in your medical records.

Limitations that are related to back problems can include:

  • Inability to walk more than a block without a break
  • Not being able to lift or carry more than 10 pounds
  • Inability to sit or stand for at least 2 hours
