Understanding Musculoskeletal System Disabilities

The musculoskeletal system is the largest system in your body. It consists of various parts that work in concert to support, move, and protect the body. These parts include:

  • Muscles
  • Bones
  • Tendons and ligaments
  • Cartilage and joints
  • Connective tissue

In a very real sense, the musculoskeletal system is what holds much of the body together. Connective tissue keeps muscles and bones joined and allows them to generate force for moving, lifting, throwing, and other common body motions.

Illnesses and conditions such as arthritis can destroy important parts of the musculoskeletal system over time. Wear and tear can also do this as the years pass. But damage from trauma is often instant, such as the trauma experienced by a gunshot or a car accident. However, some traumatic injuries to the musculoskeletal system occur after repeated traumatic incidents.

What Musculoskeletal Disorders Qualify for Disability?

Musculoskeletal disorders essentially fit into two categories: skeletal disabilities and muscular and connective tissue disabilities.

Muscular & Connective Tissue Disabilities

Degenerative diseases of the muscles, tendons, and connective tissue include:

  • ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease): This tragic, incurable, and fatal disease causes muscles to atrophy.
  • Lyme Disease: This tick-borne ailment can lead to paralysis, stiffness, swelling, and neck and joint pain.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: This autoimmune disorder causes the immune system to attack tissue surrounding joints.
  • Paralysis: Compromised nerves can lead to paralysis.
  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD): This condition can cause nerve inflammation, which can make muscles contract painfully.
  • Torn Ligaments and Tendons: Torn ligaments and tendons, such as an ACL, can lead to pain and an inability to walk.
  • Whiplash: Whipping motions cause the head to lurch forward and snap back.
  • Piriformis Syndrome: Back muscle compression pinches the sciatica.

As with skeletal disorders, in order to claim disability benefits, your muscular and connective tissue disorders must prevent you from working.

Making Sure that You Qualify for Musculoskeletal Disability Benefits

As mentioned, your condition must prevent you from engaging in material duties of your employment if you want to receive benefits based on musculoskeletal disability. Additionally, you must follow proper procedures when seeking Social Security benefits or risk being denied or delayed.

Perhaps the most important aspect of your claim is the medical evidence for your injury. Your disability claim must have proof of your injury provided by a qualified medical professional. Hence, you must sit for a medical examination and receive a diagnosis from your doctor that will serve as the foundation of your case for short- or long-term disability benefits.

You must also accompany your application with evidence such as X-rays, CT scans, or other tests that will bolster your claim for benefits.


How a Musculoskeletal Disability Attorney Can Help Win Your Case in LA

If you have a musculoskeletal condition that is preventing you from working, you may be entitled to disability benefits. Speaking with an experienced disability lawyer is advised before you move forward. They will guide you and ensure that your paperwork is correct and error-free.

After or before meeting with your attorney, you will want to visit a medical professional to get an evaluation of your condition. As mentioned, the Social Security Administration needs evidence of your condition to approve benefits. When your attorney reviews your results, they will be in a position to inform you whether you qualify for benefits.

If your attorney believes you will qualify, they will help you fill out the application with precision and review it for correctness before its submission. Processing times may vary, but know that if you make an error, the time will be even longer. With an attorney on your side, though, you will get error-free work.
