Orthopedic Issues Disability Claims

Orthopedic issues are among the top five reasons that Americans file claims for long-term disability insurance benefits. Arthritis and back pain comprise a third of all disability claims. Severe arthritis can limit the ability to use fine motor skills (writing, typing, performing surgery, dentistry, using scientific or medical equipment). A painful back issue or hip disability can destroy a worker’s ability to perform any tasks that require movement or lifting, but they can also prevent a business person from travelling to meetings and interfere with their cognitive abilities.
