Social Security Disability for Degenerative Disc Disease

What is Degenerative Disc Disease?

Degenerative disc disease is a normal condition brought about through aging. To put it simply, intervertebral discs dehydrate and shrink as we naturally age. For most people, it is not a problem. For some, it can cause severe and constant pain in their back or neck. Chronic lower back pain can sometimes spread out to the hips.

Other symptoms include:

  • pain in the thighs while walking
  • intermittent tingling or weakness through the knees
  • neck pain that radiates to the shoulders, arms, and hands

Degenerative Disc Disease and Disability

If degenerative disc disease has reduced your ability to work and function normally, then you may be eligible for social security disability benefits. There are some conditions caused by degenerative disc disease that are recognized by the SSA, including:

  • arachnoiditis
  • nerve root compression
  • spinal stenosis
  • herniated disc
