Physical Conditions That May Qualify You for Social Security Disability Benefits
Individuals who are physically unable to work due to a disability must demonstrate by exhaustive examination and comprehensive documentation that their physical condition indeed prevents them from working. After this has been shown, social security disability (SSD) benefits may be granted.

Types of Physical Conditions
There are many different types and variations of physical conditions that qualify for social security disability benefits, including:

- Spinal disorders including paralysis and spinal stenosis
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
A disease that has been newly recognized as being a disabling condition is fibromyalgia. Characterized by wide spread, chronic pain and having a painful response to non-painful stimuli, fibromyalgia diagnoses are increasing across the country. Individuals who suffer from fibromyalgia are often unable to hold steady employment and normally function in their daily lives. It is for these reasons that SSD benefits are now being granted to fibromyalgia sufferers.
