Can I get Social Security Disability for a back or spine injury?

The Social Security Administration provides a listing of impairments that describes major diseases and impairments and their corresponding symptoms that the government considers automatically disabling. In order to qualify for a disability, these listed conditions must have lasted for at least 12 months and should be backed up by medical records reporting diagnosis and attempted treatment. Disability claimants who meet or exceed a listing are most likely to win their disability claim. If a claimant does not meet or equal or a listing they are still eligible, however proving they do not have the residual capacity to work can be much more difficult.
