Social Security Disability for Back Injury

You may look fine to others, and some of the time you feel fine. This is the curse of back ailments. The office of Russell W. Brown & Associates understands back and neck injuries. We know that it can hurt just to walk or stand. We know that you think twice about bending or lifting anything. We know you are frustrated that the injury won't heal and you can't work. If you have back pain so severe that you are unable to make it through an 8 hour day, even at home, without having to lie down or recline, you are disabled for Social Security purposes regardless of your age.

Our office has been very successful in winning claims for Social Security disability (SSDI). Serving clients throughout the state of Texas, we have handled thousands of cases, including back injuries. Call us if your claim has been denied.

Back Injuries

We will take your case as far as necessary through the appeals process to pursue the SSDI or SSI benefits you need. Our office has handled every type of lumbar and cervical injury, including:

• Fractured vertebrae
• Herniated disc (slipped disc)
• Degenerated disc
• Nerve root impingement (radiculopathy/radiculitis)
• Lower back strain
• Neck injury
• Spondylosis
• Stenosis

Proving Your Disability

The key to securing benefits for a back injury is documenting your pain and limitations. We will show you how to work with your doctors to build the evidence that Social Security requires. You need to tell your physician if you have weakness or numbness, and what activities are painful. Your medical records need to reflect any problems with sitting, standing, walking or lifting. Receiving Social Security Disability benefits for back, neck, and spine injuries can be tricky. Back pain is difficult to measure and the cause of your pain may be hard to prove. Unless you have a measurable neurological damage or a spinal cord injury, the evidence of your back injury on X-rays, MRIs, or other diagnostic tests that support your disability claim, may not be enough, by itself, to win your case.

We understand the difference between the ability to do a job and the ability to hold a job. Even though you may be able to work, you may not be able to do the job consistently. If you would have to miss two or more days of work a month on average because of your back pain, you may be considered unable to hold a job and, thus, be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.
