A New Study Finds that 1 in 10 People Suffer From Lower Back Pain

By Michelle Shvarts
Principal Attorney

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on lower back pain.  Lower back pain is now the No. 1 cause of job disability around the world.  For some people, lower back pain can be controlled but for others treatment proves more difficult.   If you are dealing with severe lower back pain, you know how difficult that can be.  If it prevents you from working, you should consider applying for Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI or SSI).  These benefits can provide a vital life line while you are unable to work and medical benefits to help you get the necessary medical treatment.  Applying for SSDI or SSI benefits based on your back condition can be complicated.  Contacting an attorney experienced with dealing with Social Security Disability cases can significantly help improve your chances of receiving these benefits.
