Disability claims based on an allegation of “back pain” are very common. In these claims, the question of disability typically depends on the degree of functional loss related to structural problems with the spine.
The severity of a claimant’s back pain cannot always be understood based solely on spinal abnormalities seen on plain X-rays, computerized tomographic images (CT), or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Despite this fact, there is a general correlation between objective spine abnormality findings and credible pain. This where our attorneys at Hoglund Law Offices come into play.
If your back problem is confirmed by imaging studies and is refractory to conservative treatments, you may be unable to work full-time. If so, you might be eligible for Social Security benefits in Minnesota.
