Long Term Disability and Joint Pain

The elbows, knees, hips, wrists, ankles, and shoulders – the body’s major joints – are incorporated in the motion required to perform even the most basic tasks. Major pain in even one of these areas can be a significant deterrent to a person’s ability to perform work-related activities such as pushing, pulling, climbing, walking, and lifting. For individuals with chronic pain in these areas, maintaining employment can be difficult or impossible. When a medical condition prohibits someone from continuing their line of work, it may be appropriate to seek long-term disability benefits.

The Indiana long-term disability attorneys of Hankey Law Office, have the experience and skill necessary to help individuals who are suffering from disabling conditions to get the benefits they need. If you are suffering from joint dysfunction due to an underlying condition, we may be of assistance. Contact our offices at (800) 520-3633.

Major Causes of Joint Pain

Joint pain is caused by a number of different conditions. Some of the most common conditions that cause joint pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Infectious diseases (such as Lyme disease, measles, Epstein-Barr syndrome)
  • Accidents
  • Birth defects
  • Hereditary conditions
  • Work-related injuries

No matter what the underlying cause, if someone’s joint pain prohibits their physical abilities, it could qualify them for long-term disability benefits.
