How Does The VA Rate My Arthritis Disability?
 
03:24
U.S. soldiers and veterans have been significantly affected by osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when cartilage—the connective, structural tissue in the body—breaks down. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that attacks the lining of the joints. Both types of arthritis are painful and sometimes debilitating. Soldiers are at an increased risk for osteoarthritis because the wear and tear on their joints can be extreme and excessive. Those on active duty face rigorous training, multiple deployments, and carry heavy equipment and body armor that can create intense pressure on joints and contribute to arthritis. In the early years of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, service personnel carried between 80 and 120 pounds of gear. Additionally, combat wounds such as joint injuries from shrapnel and broken bones from roadside bombs can eventually lead to osteoarthritis. In active service personnel under 40, osteoarthritis is the leading cause of disability and medical discharge, and those on active duty as well as veterans are two times more likely to suffer from osteoarthritis than civilians. Because arthritis is so prevalent in soldiers and veterans, the VA has determined that this condition is service-connected if diagnosed within a year of discharge. However, if symptoms of arthritis present themselves in later years, you may still be eligible for VA disability. If you have service-connected arthritis, a VA rating specialist will look at the following factors when determining your rating: functional loss, instability and pain. . If you have service-connected arthritis, a VA rating specialist will look at the three main factors when determining your rating. The first is functional loss. This factor focuses on the limitations of the joint’s range of motion. For example, the VA rating specialist will evaluate an arthritic knee by its ability to perform normal, working movements. The second factor the VA will look at is instability. The VA rating specialist will categorize instability of the joint in three ways: slight (10%), moderate (20%), or severe (30%). And the last factor is pain. Most veterans with arthritis experience pain. While the VA rating system doesn’t usually recognize pain as a disability, it may be factored in for arthritis—especially if it affects the knee. The VA may recognize that the pain is impacting your ability to use that joint If you suffer from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, and your symptoms make it difficult or impossible to sustain gainful employment, you may be eligible for VA disability benefits.

Winning VA Disability Benefits for a Joint Injury
 
01:46
Leg, knee, ankle, hip, and shoulder injuries are among the most common types of injuries suffered by military personnel. One study found that almost 60 percent of injured Army veterans who were unable to resume their military duties after an injury were suffering from a muscle, bone or joint injury. Situations like rough helicopter or aircraft landings, vehicle accidents, and the onset of arthritis are just a few of the causes of debilitating joint damage which can happen to a service member. Because many veterans have lived an active lifestyle joint injuries can be especially discouraging. If a service-connected injury is keeping you living the life you once enjoyed, you may be eligible for VA disability benefits. VA claims for joint injury can be complex because range of motion plays a huge part in the evaluation of your disability. Disability rating for injuries to all joints—leg, knee, ankle, hip, and shoulder—are based on range of motion, not the degree of pain the injury causes or the dosage of medication needed for relief. If you have a service-connected joint injury and were turned down for VA disability benefits, it is important to get immediate help with the next step, which is an appeal of the initial decision. And we can help. Call us at Cuddigan Law for a free evaluation of your case.

Patellar Tendonitis VA Disability Rating - Patellar Tendonitis - NEObracex
 
03:53
Click Here: http://neobracex.com/p/pt5809/ For a great offer on Patellar Tendonitis Va Disability Rating Patellar tendonitis is a common overuse injury, caused by repetitive stress on your patellar tendon. The stress results in tiny tears in the tendon, which your body attempts to repair. But as the tears in the tendon multiply, they cause pain from inflammation and weakening of the tendon. Constant jumping, landing, and changing direction can cause strains, tears, and damage to the patellar tendon. So kids who regularly play sports that involve a lot of repetitive jumping-- like track and field (particularly high-jumping), basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, running, and soccer-- can put a lot of strain on their knees. A combination of factors may contribute to the development of patellar tendinitis, including: Physical activity. Running and jumping are most commonly associated with patellar tendinitis. Sudden increases in how hard or how often you engage in the activity also add stress on the tendon, as can changing your running shoes. Tight leg muscles. Tight thigh muscles (quadriceps) and hamstrings, which run up the back of your thighs, can increase strain on your patellar tendon. Muscular imbalance. If some muscles in your legs are much stronger than others, the stronger muscles could pull harder on your patellar tendon. This uneven pull could cause tendinitis. In jumper's knee, the patellar tendon is damaged. Since this tendon is crucial to straightening the knee, damage to it causes the patella to lose any support or anchoring. This causes pain and weakness in the knee, and leads to difficulty in straightening the leg. For mild to moderate jumper's knee, treatment includes: Resting from activity or adapting a training regimen that greatly reduces any jumping or impact. Icing the knee to reduce pain and inflammation. Wearing a knee support or strap (called an intrapatellar strap or a Chopat strap) to help support the knee and patella. The strap is worn over the patellar tendon, just beneath the kneecap. A knee support or strap can help minimize pain and relieve strain on the patellar tendon. Elevating the knee when it hurts (for example, placing a pillow under the leg). Anti-inflammatory medications, like ibuprofen, to minimize pain and swelling. Massage therapy. Minimum-impact exercises to help strengthen the knee. Rehabilitation programs that include muscle strengthening, concentrating on weight-bearing muscle groups like the quadriceps and calf muscles. Specialized injections to desensitize nerve endings and reduce inflammation. Patellar tendonitis can worsen without proper treatment. It will eventually result in degeneration of the tendon. This condition is common in many athletes and affects more than 20 percent of all jumping athletes. Full recovery takes anywhere from six to 12 months after physical therapy. The most important factor in preventing jumper's knee is stretching. A good warm-up regimen that involves stretching the quadriceps, hamstring, and calf muscles can help prevent jumper's knee. It's always a good idea to stretch after exercising, too. Patellar tendonitis is a common overuse injury, caused by repetitive stress on your patellar tendon. As the tears in the tendon multiply, they cause pain from inflammation and weakening of the tendon. If some muscles in your legs are much stronger than others, the stronger muscles could pull harder on your patellar tendon. In jumper's knee, the patellar tendon is damaged.

VA Disability Benefits for Nerve Damage
 
02:40
Commonly known as "nerve damage," peripheral neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves outside the spinal cord and brain. A person with nerve damage can experience prickling or numbness in the fingers and toes that may spread to the feet and hands. In later stages, the condition may cause shooting pains, burning, or throbbing. It's also possible to lose balance and coordination. Thousands of veterans have been disabled because of neuropathy: a condition that has many causes, but can result from exposure to toxic chemicals, infections, and traumatic injury during military service. Proving your eligibility for Veterans' disability benefits is often a challenging and complicated process. And you must prove your condition is service-connected. For those veterans who were exposed to Agent Orange--a chemical used to destroy crops and trees during the Vietnam War--you qualify for presumed disability. Because it's likely that exposure to this chemical caused certain diseases, these diseases are considered "presumptive diseases," and the VA accepts that military service caused the condition. Diabetes is the most common cause of neuropathy, resulting in diabetic neuropathy disability. Because of nerve damage, a person may not sense pain in his toes or feet, and this can result in sores or open wounds that aren't noticed right away. If these sores aren't treated, the person can experience infections that can become quite serious. \n\n Vietnam veterans may qualify for presumed disability caused by exposure to Agent Orange if their condition is brought about by diabetes. Veterans diagnosed with early-onset type 2 diabetes and whose symptoms include nerve damage are eligible. If early-onset peripheral neuropathy occurred within one year of exposure and a veteran is at least 10 percent disabled based on the VA rating schedule, it is assumed that military service caused the condition. If you are a veteran suffering from peripheral neuropathy and need VA Disability compensation benefits, or if you have been denied disability benefits, contact us for a free evaluation of your situation. At Cuddigan Law you have a team of professionals in your corner who will fight for your rights.

Compensation 101: How did I get this rating?

VA uses the Combined Ratings Table to determine a Veteran’s disability rating. VA makes this determination about the severity of a disability based on the evidence submitted as part of a claim, or that VA obtains from military records. VA rates disability from 0% to 100% in 10% increments (e.g. 10%, 20%, 30% etc.). See the Combined Ratings section below for information about how VA calculates disability percentage for disabilities here by visiting http://www.benefits.va.gov/COMPENSATION/rates-index.asp#combined.

Injury and joint overuse, both common among veterans, can contribute to degenerative arthritis.   It is important to note that both degenerative arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis  may be eligible for presumptive service-connection if symptoms appear within one year of discharge from military service. A veteran only needs to show that the condition is at least 10 percent disabling, and that symptoms began within one year of discharge. ★ JOIN US IN OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU AND OUR FELLOW VETERANS ★ ▶ facebook.com/VET2VET ▶ twitter.com/VET2VET ▶ youtube.com/c/VET2VET

Can you Get Disability Benefits for a Back or Spine Injury?
 
04:09
http://www.disabilitydenials.com/back-disability.html In this video Marc Whitehead, Board Certified Disability Attorney, discusses whether or not it is possible for someone to receive benefits because of a back or spine injury. Some type of back disability effects most people at one time or another, inhibiting their ability to work. While the bulk of back injuries are short term and workers are able to resume their employment, for some people a disability back problem can turn into a life time of pain that effects their quality of life. Back disability claims are routinely challenged by disability insurance companies, The Social Security Administration and The Department of Veterans Affairs. If this has been your experience it may be time to seek legal help, in order to prove you are indeed disabled. If your disability claim is based on a group employee benefits plan or private disability insurance plan the insurance company will do their best to deny your claim based on insufficient medical records and many other arguments. Employee benefits and Private Disability Insurance are governed by very different laws. Determining whether your claim is governed under federal ERISA law is extremely important. The ultimate issue will be whether you can still preform your own occupation, or in some cases whether you can preform any occupation that will pay a certain percentage of your former salary. The Social Security evaluation is different, in that it doesn't focus on a persons diagnosis. Social Security Disability is based on the functional limitations the claimant has. Your back disability must be judged sever enough to prevent you from preforming substantially gainful activity for 12 months or more. The Social Security Administration explains their complex disability determination process in their publication known as The Listings of Impairments. Most back cases are evaluated under section 1.04 of The Listings. Veterans suffering from service connected Back injuries are often denied VA Disability Benefits. If the Veterans Claim is approved it's common for them to be assigned an unsatisfactory disability rating. Neck and Back injury cases are some of the most demanding and disputed VA Disability Cases. The VA offers Veterans an exhaustive guide that describes how back disability and other impairments of the muscular skeletal system are determined and rated. You can find it in the VA publication known as The Schedule for Rating Disabilities. What Type of Back Conditions might qualify for Disability Benefits? While a back disability may refer generally to an injury or disorder of the back and spine area, spinal injuries are back disorders that entail specific damage to the spinal itself, including Nerve Damage to the Spinal Cord. Progressive conditions that often result in spinal injury and back disability are things such as: -Degenerative Disk Disease - Scoliosis - Spinal Stenosis - Bulging or Herniated Disk - Osteoporosis - Sciatica Sometimes the treatment for back and spine injuries can worsen the condition. Pain medications or treatments can also cause disabling side-effects and debilitating symptoms.

How Does the VA Rate Back Cases?
 
02:33
Back pain is a major cause of disability for veterans. VA disability benefits are available for several types of back and spine disorders. Just like in the civilian world, the major causes of service member back injuries are trips and falls. Because military personnel often work around dangerous equipment and under difficult conditions injuries from falls are common. Sometimes back pain may not develop until years after an injury. Another common cause of back pain is osteoarthritis. Soldiers are at an increased risk for osteoarthritis because the wear and tear on their joints can be extreme and excessive. Those on active duty face rigorous training, multiple deployments, and carry heavy equipment and body armor that can create intense pressure on joints and contribute to arthritis. Other causes of debilitating back pain can include spine issues like herniated discs, bulge discs, and compressed discs. Many veterans think their back pain must be from an activity directly related to training or from wartime experiences. But that’s not the case. For example, if you injured your back in car crash while on active duty you may be eligible for benefits. It does not matter whether or not the crash occurred in a military or private vehicle or whether or not it occurred on or off base. If your back pain interferes with your ability to work, you may be eligible for Total Disability Individual Unemployability benefits. Individual Unemployability benefits pay the same as a 100 percent veterans benefits rating. However, you do not have to have a 100 percent VA disability rating to qualify for Individual Unemployability benefits. Winning VA benefits for back and spine issues can be complicated. But if you have back pain which you believe is related to your time in the service, we can help. Cuddigan Law’s accredited VA attorneys are ready to fight for your rights.

Does Fibromyalgia Qualify you for Disability Benefits?
 
05:32
In this video Marc Whitehead, Board Certified Disability Attorney, explains whether or not Fibromyalgia qualifies you for disability benefits. Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that effects about 5 million Americans. Patients suffer intense pain and aching in the muscles and soft tissues throughout the body including specific tender points. Symptoms also include: Fatigue Cognitive Dysfunction Irritable Bowel Syndrome Depression Anxiety The exact cause of Fibromyalgia is unknown and may involve different factors that, when working together, can effect the way the brain processes pain. Events or conditions that are likely to trigger Fibromyalgia are genetics, emotional and physical trauma, and certain illnesses or infections. While Fibromyalgia does not damage the joint or organs the constant pain and fatigue can inflict a devastating impact on your life. Although the pain associated with Fibromyalgia disability is real, there is no lad test or x-ray to measure the findings of Fibromyalgia. Doctors diagnose Fibromyalgia based on the patients symptoms and physical exams. For this and other reasons getting approval for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration, the Department of Veterans Affairs, or your Long Term Disability Insurance plan could be problematic. Social Security Disability Claims Based on Fibromyalgia: If Fibromyalgia prevents you from working, you may be entitled to Social Security Benefits. However winning disability under the SSA disability program can be difficult. The SSA blue book which is the SSA reference manual containing the approval of medical listings of specific impairments does not even include Fibromyalgia. Since there is no medical listing, the Social Security Examiner will attempt to equate your disability with an existing medical listing. They will also consider and give value to accompanying impairments that may be involved, such as: Osteoarthritis Degenerative Disk Disease Lupus However the determining factor for qualifying for Social Security Disability benefits is whether Fibromyalgia or any other impairment effects your ability to work. Long Term Disability Insurance Claims Based on Fibromyalgia: LTD Insurance Benefits for disability based on Fibromyalgia are available under most policies. However many insurance companies are unsympathetic towards policy holders who submit claims based on Fibromyalgia. Insurers tend to view these claims with skepticism. Common reasons for claim denials include characterizing that Fibromyalgia is treatable or, without specific diagnostics to show cause, there is no reason to consider you disabled from sedentary work. Insurance providers often lead you to believe that your case is defeated and you'll have no alternative. They will apply misleading tactics using their own medical records or vocational evaluations to dispute your claim. They may delay the process by not responding or making continual additional demands for information. Also, they may even hold out until forced by the court to give you the benefits that you are entitled to. Veterans Disability Claims Based on Fibromyalgia: Veterans can claim disability based on Fibromyalgia if they can prove it was connected to their service in the military. The VA Schedule for rating disability lists that evaluation criteria for Fibromyalgia under the muscular skeletal system. Disability claim approval and rating levels vary according to several criteria. Such as whether the symptoms are wide spread, on both sides of the body and above the waist, constant or episodic or require continuous medication. Any disability including a mental disorder that is medically determined to be secondary to Fibromyalgia can be separately evaluated. With over 700,000 troops serving in the Persian gulf beginning in august of 1990, countless Veterans came home with symptoms of muscle, joint and bone pain, debilitating fatigue, memory and thinking disorders, emotional distress, and other symptoms indicating Fibromyalgia. As of 2009 the VA identified Fibromyalgia as a presumptive disorder for Gulf War Veterans who meet the criteria of the Va schedule for rating disabilities. These Veterans do not need to prove a connection to their military service and Fibromyalgia in order to receive their benefits. Although Fibromyalgia is considered a presumptive illness securing disability compensation can be tremendously difficult. Many veterans who served in other locations are also disabled by Fibromyalgia.

Spinal Stenosis: Strong Evidence of Disability
 
05:18
If your medical records indicate that you have spinal stenosis in your spine, and you have symptoms such as pain, numbness, pins & needles sensation, and weakness, you most likely have a strong claim for Social Security disability. As I discuss in this video, spinal stenosis means that there is an abnormal narrowing of your spinal canal. This can be caused by arthritis, bone spurs, injuries or just aging. Stenosis can also occur in the cervical (neck) spine, thoracic (mid-back) spine, or lumbar (low back) spine. Often, surgery may be recommended, but, remember that Social Security cannot deny benefits to you if you choose not to undergo surgery, even if that surgery would likely correct the problem. This is because every back or neck surgery carries with it the risk of death or paralysis. Often disability claimants who are not candidates for surgery or who are not willing to take the risk of back surgery end up in long term pain management, and generally disability judges will conclude that such a person could not reliably perform work because of the side effects of pain medications. =============== FREE SURVIVAL KIT ================ Don't know where to begin?

Winning Strategies for Back Pain Disability Cases
 
12:47
How to Win Your Back Pain Case before a Social Security Disability Judge Social Security disability claims arising from back pain are the most common types of cases seen by SSA administrative law judges. If you expect to win, your case needs to stand out - in this video I discuss the factors that are most convincing to judges. Realize as well that because spinal injuries are common, your judge may have undergone back surgery and recovered completely. Of course, judges likely have access to very expansive health insurance with access to top doctors and thorough rehabilitation before returning to a non-physical labor job. When applicable, I focus on my client's long and consistent work history - and I have my clients testify that they would not have left a long and fulfilling career to sit at home for 2 years hoping to collect $1,500 per month from Social Security. I also encourage my clients to try to work - in my experience one or more "unsuccessful work attempts" serves as compelling evidence that you want to return to work and you were willing to try to push through pain and discomfort. The better cases have a thick medical records file. You should seek on-going treatment with an orthopedist, neurosurgeon and/or pain doctor and continue to seek treatment. You should comply with all of your doctor's recommendations - even painful or difficult suggestions such as physical therapy, weight loss and smoking cessation. Your record should contain multiple MRI reports or CT scans showing an on-going problem. A 3 year old X-ray is not sufficient. And prior to your hearing you should meet with your lawyer to practice testimony - avoid using phrases like "I can't sit for very long or lift very much." You want to testify with as much specificity as you can about your capacity to engage in exertional activities. If you'd like to learn more about how I prepare back pain cases for hearings along with several case studies detailing my experiences in actual hearings, please visit my web site at http://www.georgiasocialsecuritydisabilityattorney.com/case-strategies-and-case-studies/back-pain-winning-social-security-disability-strategies/.

If you know someone who needs to see it, share it.Leave a comment below with your thoughts. “Chronic Pain Syndrome with Depression” A Lifestyle Impact Claim is a high-value secondary claim that many veterans are eligible for due to one or more primary service-connected disabilities. Most veterans, lawyers, and VSOs DON’T know about secondary claims, which are eligible for compensation under the law. A Lifestyle Impact Claim provides a veteran with additional compensation if a current primary service connected disability has impacted or limited your life in some way. This could be occupational, social, or recreational impairment. To qualify for a Lifestyle Impact Claim, you must have a primary service connected disability rated 0% or higher, and that primary disability must be significantly affecting your life in a negative way. For example, you may have chronic pain due to your service connected back problems. Because your back pain is chronic and reoccurring, you can no longer run, lift weights, bend over, or golf. The result of this chronic pain is that you’ve become depressed, have gained weight, and no longer enjoy recreational activities. A Lifestyle Impact Claim is actually a mental health claim, which will be classified under the law as “Chronic Pain Syndrome with Depression.” We can help you file for and win your Lifestyle Impact Claim. Please reach out to us at VA Claims Insider, and we’ll get you the VA disability compensation YOU deserve.

It's presumed. Those are the things like Agent Orange. If you have one of the presumed illnesses and had boots on the ground in Vietnam, you don't have to show that it actually caused it.

Knee Disorders Long Term Disability Claims Help & Information
 
04:51
We are available nationwide: call 855-319-4421 or email: https://www.diattorney.com/free-consultation/?referrer=yt Disability attorneys Gregory Dell and Stephen Jessup discuss short term and long term disability claims resulting from knee conditions. The types of knee conditions often seen in the context of disability claims are those which are often very severe and the claimant has high levels of chronic pain associated with the knee disorder. These types of chronic knee conditions are often treated with injections or even total knee replacement surgery. Other types of knee conditions are those caused by accidents or injuries. A common challenge when making a claim for disability as a result of a knee disorder, is when the claimant has a "sedentary" or "light" occupation and the disability insurance companies are quick to deny claims on the basis that a knee condition should not prevent a claimant from performing primarily seated work. They fail to consider the constant pain the knee conditions cause, regardless of whether the claimant is sitting, standing or walking. Often a knee condition will progress over years, worsening until the claimant can no longer bear to work. These claims are commonly denied because the disability insurance company will ask "What changed?" As with any other disability claim, it is vital for your treating doctors to properly document your condition, treatment and work restrictions.

For spinal conditions such as Lumbosacral or cervical strain, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, ankylosing spondylitis, spinal fusion, and vertebral fracture/dislocation, the VA will use the General Rating Formula for Diseases and Injuries of the Spine to determine a disability rating. When using this rating system, the VA will evaluate both the cervical spine and the thoracolumbar spine through a variety of tests. ★ JOIN US IN OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU AND OUR FELLOW VETERANS ★ ▶ facebook.com/VETOVET2 ▶ twitter.com/VETOVET2 ▶ youtube.com/c/VETOVET2

How Do You Prove Your Diabetes Qualifies You for Disability Benefits?
 
05:19
http://www.disabilitydenials.com/diabetes-disability.html In this video Marc Whitehead, a Board Certified Disability Attorney, explains how you prove your diabetes qualifies you for disability benefits. Millions of Americans are affected by Diabetes, disability claims filed by those who live with this disease are often denied benefits even though the claimants are truly no longer able to work. For a person with diabetes, their body can't regulate their Blood Glucose (Blood Sugar). Insulin is the main hormone used by the body to regulate sugar. A Diabetics body cannot make enough insulin or can't process the insulin produced by the pancreas. Diabetes is a major cause of disability because it effects the entire body. It is identified with many serious complications and disabling symptoms. Disabling chronic conditions may develop, such as -Kidney Failure -Cardiovascular disease -Damage to the retina Diabetes can also experience poor healing of wounds and gang green in the feet which may led to feet amputation. People with diabetes also frequently suffer from diabetic neuropathy. Disability claims for people with diabetes are routinely challenged by insurance companies, The Social Security Administration, and The Department of Veterans Affairs. If this has been your experience, it may be time to seek legal help in order to prove you are indeed disabled. Social Security Disability Claims Based on Diabetes: For a Social Security Disability Claim, you must prove one of two things- Your Condition meets or is equals the medical description of diabetes found in the Social Security Listing of Impairments. Diabetes is listed under Section 9.0. OR If your condition is not sever enough to meet or equal the Social Security Listing. You must prove that your condition causes significant functional limitations that disable you from working. In making this evaluation the Social Security Administration considers your age, education, work experience, and your Residual Functional Capacity. Social Security recently changed the requirements in their listings for Section 9.0. The Section now states that you need to meet or equal a listing by showing that diabetes effects a specific area of your body, the SSA then evaluates the effected body system. In other words instead of being found disabled under Section 9.0 for diabetes, you must also refer to other specific listings. For example: Hyperglycemia can cause long term complications that effects various body systems. The SSA evaluates these conditions under the effected body systems cardiac arrhythmia, intestinal necrosis, cerebral edema, and other move disorders. With proper preparation and skilled legal representation many with diabetes disability claims that are first denied by the SSA can be approved by the Administrative Law Judge when the Hearing comes. Veterans Disability Based Diabetes: The Department of Veterans Affairs Presumes that specific disabilities diagnosed in certain veterans were caused by their military service. For Vietnam Veterans, Type 2 Diabetes has been associated with exposure to Agent Orange and is required to be at least 10% disabling under the VA's rating regulations. Basic requirements must be met including, -A medical diagnosis of diabetes -Evidence of service in Vietnam The VA the refers to the schedule of rating disabilities when determining the level of the veterans Service Connected Disability. Diabetes is listed under the Endocrine System and is rated according to the loss of function and the effect on your ability to be employed. If the VA denied you because they said your diabetes disability is not service connected, it existed before service, or it isn't sever enough. You need to consult with qualified legal counsel. Long Term Disability Insurance Claims Based on Diabetes: If your Diabetes claim was rejected by you insurance company, what do you do now? Abundant court cases will attest that insurance companies are notorious for denying valid disability insurance claims. Our attorneys routinely work with complicated medical facts surrounding Diabetes Disability and communicate with treating doctors and experts, and challenge insurance companies physicians and other experts who seek to further their own interests.

Osteoarthritis Long Term Disability Claim
 
06:24
We are available nationwide: call 855-319-4421 or email: https://www.diattorney.com/free-consultation/?referrer=yt Disability attorneys Gregory Dell and Cesar Gavidia discuss osteoarthritis and the challenges claimants may face when making claims for short or long term disability benefits due to this condition. Primary osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that is often caused by the aging process, and is a very common condition. Because it is so common, disability insurance companies are more likely to deny these claims. Although it's possible to provide objective diagnostic evidence to prove you suffer from osteoarthritis, such as x-rays, what is more difficult to prove to the disability insurance companies is the extent or severity of your symptoms and why you are disabled from performing your job as a result of the condition. Often, instead of considering the documentation contained within your medical records, they will focus on the lack of information, such as, the doctor is not treating you aggressively enough or why aren't you taking stronger medications if your pain is so severe. One thing claimants can do to help with their claim is to keep a pain journal to document daily pain episodes and triggers. The pain journal can then be presented to your doctor and the doctor can incorporate that information into your medical record. Another challenge is that osteoarthritis is a chronic condition and the disability insurance company may ask, what changed? Why can you no longer work even though you have had this condition for years? Making sure your physician is properly documenting your symptoms and complaints will help overcome this challenge.

Tests For  Examination  Of The Knee - Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
 
15:06
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes test for evaluation of knee injuries and all the maneuvers you need to know to preform an excellent knee examination. McMurray’s test is a knee examination test that elicits pain or a painful click as the knee is brought from flexion to extension with either internal or external rotation. The McMurray’s test uses the tibia to trap the meniscus between the femoral condyle and the tibia. When performing the McMurray’s test, the patient should be lying supine with the knee flexed. The examiner grasps the patient’s heel with one hand and places the other hand over the knee joint. To test the medial meniscus, the knee is fully flexed and the examiner then passively externally rotates the tibia and places a valgus force. The knee is then extended in order to test the medial meniscus. to tests the lateral meniscus, the examiner passively internally rotates the tibia and places a varus force. The knee is then extended in order to test the lateral meniscus. A positive test is indicated by pain, clicking or popping within the joint and may signal a tear of either the medial or lateral meniscus when the knee is brought from flexion to extension. Lachman’s test is the most sensitive and best test for examining an ACL injury. The patient should be lying supine and completely relaxed. Make sure that the patient’s hip, quadriceps and hamstring muscles are all relaxed. Bend the knee to about 20-30°. Stabilize the femur with one hand and with the other hand, pull the tibia anteriorly and posteriorly against the femur. With an intact ACL as the tibia is pulled forward the examiner should feel an endpoint. If the ACL is ruptured, the ACL will be lax and the examination will feel softer with no endpoint. The tibia can be pulled forward more than normal (anterior translation). Both the Lachman’s test and the Pivot shift test are associated with 20-30°s of knee flexion. The Lachman’s test starts at 20-30 ° of flexion. With the Pivot shift test you feel the clunk at 20-30°s of flexion. 20-30°s of flexion is important for examination of the ACL (remember that). The patient should be lying supine. Make sure the patient is totally relaxed. With pivot shift, the knee is in the subluxed position and the knee is in full extension. The pivot shift starts with extension of the knee and you can feel the clunk at 20-30° of flexion. Hold the knee in full extension then add valgus force plus internal rotation of the tibia to increase the rotational instability of the knee. Then take the knee into flexion. A palpable clunk is very specific of an ACL tear. the iliotibial band will reduce the tibia and create the clunk on the outside of the knee. Always compare with the other side. The reverse pivot shift test helps to diagnose acute or chronic posterolateral instability of the knee. A significantly positive reverse pivot shift test suggests that the PCL, the LCL, the arcuate complex and the popliteofibular ligament are all torn. The reverse pivot shift test begins with the patient supine with the knee in 90° flexion. Valgus stress is then applied to the knee with an external rotation force. Bring the knee from 90°s of flexion to full extension. The tibia reduces from a posterior subluxed position at about 20°s of flexion. A shift and reduction of the lateral tibial plateau can be felt as it moves anteriorly from a posteriorly subluxed position. A clunk occurs as the knee is extended. This is called reverse pivot shift because shift of the lateral tibial plateau occurs in the opposite direction of the true pivot shift (Seen in ACL tears). If the tibia is posterolaterally subluxed, the iliotibial band will reduce the knee as the IT band transitions form a flexor to extensor of the knee. It is very important to compare this tests to the contralateral knee. Pivot shift = ACL tear The test is done with the patient in supine position and the knee is flexed to 90°. The examiner stabilizes the foot. Next the examiner pushes backward on the tibia, looking for the tibia to sag posteriorly. Observer the sag that develops due to tear of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). The amount of translation in relationship to the femur is observed. The test is considered positive if excessive posterior translation of the tibia is demonstrated.

Winning Strategies for Migraine Headache Disability Cases
 
10:25
What are proven strategies for winning migraine headache Social Security disability claims? As I discuss in this video, migraine headache claims can be challenging because there is no way for your doctor to “see” your migraine using an MRI or CT scan. Social Security judges are more comfortable approving cases where there are objective tests available - for example, a herniated disc can be visualize with an MRI, or a stroke can be visualized using an MRI or CT scan. Our experience has been that you can win a migraine headache case if your claims file contains medical records from a specialist such as a neurologist or neuropsychologist, documentation that you have tried, without success, multiple medications, reports from your doctor that your headaches are frequent and unpredictable, and non-medical evidence from former co-workers or supervisors documenting job reliability problems. Your testimony at your hearing also needs to be very believable and focused on reliability problems due to unpredictable headache occurrences. You will face an uphill battle if your medical treatment records are only from your family doctor, or if you don’t have a firm diagnosis of migraines from a neurologist. ===============FREE SURVIVAL KIT==================== Don’t know where to begin?

#SE2E9 The Peripheral Nerves of the Low Back and Legs
 
30:21
The Peripheral Nerves of the Low Back and Legs is one of the most common claims made by Veterans for service-connected disability.  That is because back injury is so common during military service.   Peripheral nerves are the nerves that travel from the spinal cord to the rest of the body. Peripheral nerves that are in the lower back travel into the legs and feet. VA disability claims involving nerves in the lower back and the legs can be complex due to the fact that the larger nerves split off into smaller nerves as they go down the leg. ★ JOIN US IN OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU AND OUR FELLOW VETERANS ★ ▶ facebook.com/VETOVET2 ▶ twitter.com/VETOVET2 ▶ youtube.com/c/VETOVET2
