Lower back pain is a leading cause of disability around the world

Although our blog really only talks about disability in New Jersey and the United States, countries all over the world have their own populations of people with disabilities. Some countries have disability benefits that are similar to ours, but others have vastly different or no benefits at all. What is interesting, however, is that low back pain is a leading cause of disability around the world. When compared to 290 other conditions, low back pain was the number one condition for years lost to disability.

When someone applies for Social Security disability insurance benefits, it is important to put together a complete application or the applicant could find him- or herself joining the long wait to appeal an unfavorable decision. Many people turn to their disability lawyers for guidance on what information needs to be provided, but lawyers are also able to tell an applicant what is not relevant and what does not need to be included.
