Social Security Disability for Degenerative Disc Disease

What is Degenerative Disc Disease Disability?

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 of degenerative disc disease include:

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