Orthopedic Disorders And Social Security Disability

Individuals who have worked in the past but are rendered unable to work due to the onset of a medical condition or disability or after suffering an injury or illness are able to seek benefits from the Social Security Administration through the Social Security disability insurance program.

What Is An Orthopedic Disorder?

An orthopedic disorder is one that impacts the bones, muscles or joints of a person. Injuries or conditions that affect the bones, muscles, joints, and the spine are all orthopedic in nature. Many orthopedic injuries heal with time, while many orthopedic conditions or disorders have the potential to last a lifetime. Most individuals who have an orthopedic disorder or injury can be eligible for Social Security disability benefits if their condition severely impacts their ability to work, or prevents them from working all together.

Social Security Disability Benefits for Orthopedic Disorders

Orthopedic disorders are generally characterized as musculoskeletal disorders, which is one grouping of disorders that are specifically provided for in Section 1 of the Social Security Administration’s Disability Evaluation Under Social Security book of conditions and illnesses that are eligible for Social Security disability benefits.

In order to be eligible for Social Security disability benefits because of your orthopedic disorder, you must be able to demonstrate your condition. A handful of specific conditions that the Social Security Administration will evaluate includes:

Back pain;
Bone spurs;
Carpal tunnel syndrome;
Bone fractures that will not likely be mended within 12 months;
Hip replacement;
Inflammatory arthritis;
Joint pain;
Knee replacement;
Major dysfunction of a joint;

Muscular dystrophy;
Neck pain;
Neck problems;
Rheumatoid arthritis;
Shoulder pain;
Shoulder problems;
Shoulder replacement; and
Spine injuries.
