A number of our Social Security Disability clients suffer from arthritis. Individuals suffering from this disorder experience the following symptoms:
- joint pain,
- swelling, and
- limited range of motion.
The course of prescribed treatment can include medications, physical therapy, and surgery. Not all individuals who have been diagnosed with arthritis will be found disabled under Social Security rules. One source of information we recommend for people with arthritis is the Arthritis Foundation. This is a non-profit organization with a Web site full of information and resources for those suffering from arthritis.
If you, or someone you know, is suffering from severe arthritis and considering a Social Security Disability claim, we advise you to speak with an attorney. We handle cases throughout the state of Texas, but we are always happy to give you a referral if we are unable to assist you.
In May 2009 Kraft and Associates was a sponsor of the 2009 Dallas Arthritis Walk. The time has come again to start planning for the 2010 walk that will be held in North Dallas on Saturday May 15 at 12700 Park Central Drive. You can sign up here. We hope to see you there, and assist the 46 million individuals who suffer from arthritis.
