Can You Receive SSD Benefits for Orthopedic Injuries?
Have you endured an orthopedic injury that has required treatment and that is likely to leave you unable to work for at least twelve months? Then you should seriously consider applying for Social Security disability benefits.
Many orthopedic injuries respond well to conservative treatments, including physical therapy, aquatic therapy, pain medicine, steroid injections, chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic modalities, and exercises. When these have been tried and yet you still have difficulty functioning on a day-to-day basis, you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Some orthopedic injuries can leave you with permanent impairments, which may cause persistent pain and leave you unable to work.
The Kocian Law Group handles the following types of orthopedic injuries on a regular basis:
- Spinal injuries including multiple disc disease, and other lumbar syndromes with radiating symptoms, where surgeries such as discectomies and fusions have been performed.
- Arm and shoulder injuries, including tears of the rotator cuff and SLAP injuries which often require surgical repair.
- Leg, knee, and foot injuries, such as injuries to the patella, a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), and other injuries, including those that require partial or total joint replacement.
- Hand and finger injuries, including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger, which may require orthopedic treatment.
- Amputations of any body part.
