Joint Problems

As people age, their joints inevitably cause problems, either because of osteoarthritis, injuries, or stress on the joint. Eventually some joint disorders cause so much joint pain and lack of  mobility  that it becomes impossible to work. When this happens, Social Security will first compare your condition to its  disability  listings for joint dysfunction and joint surgery. If the symptoms and  limitations  of your joint problem doesn't match the criteria in one of the listings, Social Security will assess your mobility and your joint pain to see how severely your  functioning  is limited and  whether  there is any work work left that you can do.
