Can You Get Disability for Cervical Radiculopathy?

If you are wondering if you can get disability for Cervical Radiculopathy, we are sharing all of the details below.

Medical conditions of the cervical region of the spine, i.e., the neck, regularly lead to Long Term Disability claims.  The conditions commonly cited include cervicalgia and cervical radiculopathy which involves pain radiating into one or both arms.  Cervical disks can be affected by injury and/or age-related wear and tear commonly leading to cervical spondylosis and degenerative disk disease.   Bulging and herniated cervical disks can lead to compression of on nerve roots leading to intractable, constant paid. 

These kinds of neck conditions make almost any kind of work more than merely unpleasant but, in fact, impossible to continue.  These conditions can cause an extremely limited range of motion with associated pain that can impair your ability to sit and concentrate on any task for any given amount of time required by your position.  These kinds of limitations obviously can affect jobs that are mostly sedentary in nature, let alone those that require more physically intensive demands.

Cervical radiculopathy can also require regular treatment by a physical therapist which can take you out of work several times a month as well. Furthermore, pain medication, steroids, or collars may be used to help with the pain in your neck. A cervical fusion may be recommended. All of these considerations can cause you to be out of the office or otherwise unable to work due to your conditions.

We routinely represent clients who have become unable to work due to cervical radiculopathy and other similar conditions. If you have questions arising out of your disability benefits claim due to your cervical condition, you should contact an attorney who routinely handles claims involving policies of disability insurance.  The law offices of Herbert M.
