Collecting Social Security Disability for Muscle and Bone Diseases
Long Beach Attorneys Explain:
Social Security Disability for Muscle & Bone Disease –
Our experienced Social Security Disability Attorneys have successfully won SSDI cases for many individuals with musculoskeletal diseases and muscle or bone disorders.
Whether your musculoskeletal, muscle or bone disorders qualifies you to receive SSDI will depend on a number of factors.
As with any Social Security Case, you must “prove” to the Social Security Administration that:
- You have a physical or mental disease or health problem that is severe enough to keep you from working
- The condition must be anticipated to last for at least 12 months or longer
- You are unable to do any type of work in the general economy, not just work in your regular field of employment.
The Social Security Administration will take into consideration your age, your education, and your past work history when making their determination that you should be found disabled.
Bone & Muscle Diseases
Listed below are just a few of the many bone & muscle diseases our Social Security Attorneys have helped qualify for Social Security Disability.
Social Security Disability for Osteoarthritis
In the early stages of arthritis it may be difficult to qualify for SSDI. However, when your arthritis advances to a point where it severely limits your mobility or the use of your hands, Social Security Disability benefits are possible.
Social Security Disability for Shoulder Pain or Injury
Social Security does not have a specific “listing” for shoulder injuries. Whether you will qualify for Social Security Disability depends on the severity of the problem, the impairment or limitations it causes, and your prognosis for recovery.
Social Security Disability for Degenerative Joint Disease
If you are unable to work because your degenerative joint disease impairs your ability to walk or use your hands, our attorneys can typically obtain Social Security Disability benefits for.
There are two specific SSA disability “listings” that apply to degenerative disk or joint disease: major dysfunction of a joint (1.02) and disorders of the spine (1.04).
If you have degenerative joint disease in your spine, you need to prove a diagnosis of spinal stenosis, arachnoiditis, or nerve root compression to qualify under the spinal disorder listing.
Social Security Disability Benefits for Neck Pain

Because of the wide variety of causes of neck pain – from temporary to permanent, and from mild to severe – it is important to consult with one if our experienced Social Security Disability attorneys to see if your Neck Pain may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.
Social Security Disability for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
If you have vascular or regular EDS with severe symptoms that prevent you from working, you may be able to get disability.
Social Security Disability for a Torn ACL
If you were previously employed doing manual labor – and you can no longer squat, crawl, walk distances or lift heavy items, because of a torn ACL, you may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.
Social Security Disability for Sciatica
It can be difficult to qualify for disability benefits based on sciatica. If you have other physical impairments as well, your case may be easier.
Because of the difficulty of qualifying for Social Security Disability benefits with Sciatica, it is recommended that you speak to an experienced Social Security Disability attorney before you apply. Our attorneys can explain the medical records and other documentation you will need to successfully collect Social Security Disability for Sciatica.
Social Security for Soft Tissue Injuries
If you can prove that your soft tissue injury will take more than a year to heal you may be eligible for Social Security disability. Again, because of the difficulty “proving” soft tissue injuries, it is recommended that you speak to an experienced Social Security Disability attorney before you apply for SSDI.
Social Security Disability for Bone Disease
If you can document that avascular necrosis prevents you from working, Social Security will usually determine that you are disabled and qualify for Social Security Disability.
