When Are Neck And Back Pain Disabilities Under Social Security?

At the law office of Douglas W. Hutson, Attorney at Law, in Athens, Tennessee, many of the Social Security Disability cases we see involve people who suffer from chronic back or neck pain. It is, understandably, very difficult to do any type of work if you have severe back and neck pain.

Whether you perform physical labor or sit in a chair all day at work, a back or neck condition can be debilitating due to intense physical pain or the inability to remain sitting or standing for significant periods of time. In fact, postural limitations may have made it difficult or impossible for you to even perform your day-to-day tasks at home — such as showering, cooking and cleaning.

If your back or neck pain is limiting your ability to work, call our law office at 423-453-3021 for a free disability consultation. We can discuss your Social Security Disability options with you over the phone or meet with you at one of our offices in Athens or Cleveland.

Evidence Of Back And Neck Pain

Chronic back and neck pain can be caused by any number of health conditions that are recognized by the Social Security Administration as qualifying conditions — from osteoporosis to arthritis to a spinal cord injury. In many cases, people are unaware of exactly what has caused their back or neck pain, or their physicians are unable to point to an exact diagnosis.

In order to receive a diagnosis or prove your underlying condition to the SSA, you may need documentation from a variety of forms of treatment, including:

  • MRI reports
  • X-rays
  • Prescription medications
  • Physical therapy
