Treatment Of The Musculoskeletal System

On Behalf of | Jan 21, 2016 | Social Security Disability

Treatment of the musculoskeletal system can include surgery, physical therapy, occupational therapy, structural support (braces), prostheses (assistive devices), wheelchairs/canes and so-called alternate therapy such as acupuncture. Occasionally, the medical record will reflect improvement that is more optimistic than factual. This particularly happens following surgery in which a surgeon indicates that the “condition has been corrected” or something similar when, in fact, the patient’s continues to experience significant problems and limitations.

Under the Social Security Regulations, disorders of the musculoskeletal system may result from hereditary, congenital or acquired pathologic processes. Impairments may result from infectious, inflammatory or degenerative process. Impairment may result from infectious, inflammatory or degenerative processes, traumatic or developmental events, or neoplastic, vascular or toxic/metabolic diseases.
