Nerve root compression is an incredibly painful medical condition. Many times, this medical condition is associated with other painful injuries, such as herniated discs, degenerative joint disease, or fractures in the vertebrae. These injuries and diseases can be very painful preventing you from doing the activities and job you once loved. Unfortunately, getting the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits in Manchester for nerve root compression may not be as easy as it should be.
When your spinal root nerve is compressed, you must show that you have the following symptoms:
- A radiating sensation in part of your body
- Difficulty moving one or more of your limbs
- Numbness or tingling
- Dulled sensations in part of your body
- Weakened muscles
- For lower spinal nerve compression: A positive straight-leg rising test
To show these symptoms, you may be surprised to learn that you do not need an MRI showing the nerve root compression. Manchester SSDI is available without it, but filing for this listing can be difficult for other reasons. To qualify, you must have been out of work at least twelve consecutive months, or your doctor must have given a prognosis that you will remain out of work for at least twelve or more consecutive months.
Filing your paperwork for this listing can be incredibly challenging. Showing that you are unable to perform normal actions—such as bend over to pick something up, not being able to sit or stand for long periods of time, or having limited mobility making walking difficult—can help your claim. You must also show that you cannot do other limited functions, such as paperwork at a desk or answering the phone. This can be difficult and should be done with the help of a Manchester SSDI attorney.
Don’t let your nerve root compression suck your finances dry. Contact a Manchester SSDI attorney before you submit your application to learn how to get approved for this painful condition. Call a Social Security attorney from Keefe Disability Law today at 888-904-6847.
