Can I get disability benefits for epidural fibrosis Huntsville Disability Lawyer

Can I get disability benefits for epidural fibrosis Huntsville Disability Lawyer: Epidural Fibrosis is the name given to scar formation which build up near the nerve root. It is not uncommon for this condition to occur after back surgery-even with patients whose back surgery was otherwise successful. It is one of the most common causes of failed back syndrome.

Pain triggered by epidural fibrosis can be significant and can progress over time to the point of being disabling. The pin is chronic and typically fails to respond to the usual treatment for back pain. Movement exacerbates the condition, causing those who suffer with the condition to curtail their daily activities, and eventually prevent them from engaging in full time work activities.

The Social Security Administration does not have a specific listing covering epidural fibrosis, although I have had medical testimony where the specialist stated epidural fibrosis with essentially the same in symptoms and disability as spinal arachnoiditis (see Listing 1.04B  for disability due to disorders of the spine). However, if you do not "meet or equal" this listing, you may still be entitled to disability benefits if your condition, in conjunction with any other physical or mental impairment, prevents you from returning to work you have done in the past and other substantial work you might be qualified to perform given your age, education and acquired work skills.

If you or a loved one lives in or around Madison County, you are suffering from the effects of epidural fibrosis following back surgery and you believe you are disabled as the result and are entitled to Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, you do not have to take on the Social Security Administration alone.
