- question of getting disability
- indications on the direction of the examination
Herniated Disc - itself is quite a serious disease.Treatment methods are well known and tested, but the entire flue techniques is not always possible to cure a person completely.With the statistics will not argue, there is a certain (though not large) percentage of patients for whom the result of this diagnosis as a herniated disc - a disability.
There is much debate about what type of treatment is preferred in the sense that the patient is at risk to earn less than the level of disability.Studies suggest that more effective in this regard, conservative treatment, if only because that is always a second chance in the event that the expected improvement is not observed - is surgery.And only after that we can talk about the results of the treatment.
But now I would like to consider the question whether it is possible to get a group of disability in this disease, as the intervertebral hernia.
When the question about getting a disability?
legally disabled person must recognize the state through medical and social expertise.It is this examination is carried out sufficiently detailed examination, which includes sometimes unexpected factors.For example, it defines how much a person needs such as social protection.For example, if you get a large enough passive income (dividends from investments, and so on. N.) Or assistance from wealthy families, and as a result can secure better paid medical services, can themselves purchase more convenient and high-quality rehabilitation services than thosefree, which can provide you with the state, then you do not get a disability.
should also mention such a time as a survey of the patient examination.Many have evidence that the person answering innocently enough, just does not understand that he almost disclaims disability.For example, a person simply says that he normally does its job without specifying that it only works on the floor rate.As a result, he removed all restrictions on employment, and at the same time - the most benefits.But to fully work full-time with a herniated disc - a very difficult task no matter what specifically you have a job.
Usually the patient is sent to the Commission directly or through a short period of time after surgery.The same applies to those patients who are treated conservatively, because when non-surgical methods do not work, people will still be sent for surgery.After that, the doctor looks at the progress made and decide about the need for disability.This disability is not given "once and for all", the examination will have to be held regularly.It happens that a year after the operation the patient returns to normal and it is almost completely gets rid of the symptoms.In this case, the disability is removed.
Most people have become accustomed to what to expect sympathy from the state is not necessary.However, many think that people can understand the problems that they have to deal with, because waiting for the sympathy and assistance.
But the ITU, like any other public institution, no one sympathizes.It is not going to facilitate the life of someone, "show understanding" or "enter into the situation."Experts expertise are always trying to see an improvement in the patient's condition, and the results - to reduce or remove the degree of disability.Yes, and the first visit of the examination will never be easy.
Keep in mind the realities of our lives - the state you are more or less interesting, yet healthy, work and pay taxes.But as soon as you move from the category of "taxpayers" in the category of "beneficiaries" (pensions, assistance and so on. N.) - The attitude, and the former had not very good, completely spoiled.So do not expect sympathy and understanding - contact lawyers acquainted with the laws, otherwise you're just left with nothing.
What are the indications for referral to the examination and how to define disability?
There is some evidence, under which the doctor can send the patient for examination.Based on this evidence and the doctor decides whether the referral for examination and receiving a disability.
The first is, of course, long and frequent acute radiculopathy, where rehabilitation measures do not provide the desired effect.
Secondly, about the direction the examination can be negative for the disease, and repeated exacerbations, because of which a person can not do the job on their main occupation, as a result of the recommended employment and qualifications of its earnings fall.
third reason may be prolonged temporary disability of the patient, which is present syndrome of the shoulder-brush, in cases where questionable or poor prognosis.
cephalgia, asthenic syndrome, vestibular disorders, contra the main factors in the work and objective impossibility of rational employment - all these factors can also be relied on by a doctor sending a patient for examination.
In addition, about the direction the examination can be sustained pain and movement disorders that may appear after the compression of the cauda equina, radikulomieloishemii, radikuloishemii.
This patient also must pass the required minimum survey, which includes:
- radiography of the spine;
- if necessary - CT and MRI;
- with the syndrome radikulomieloishemii - EMG;
- vascular complications of lumbar degenerative disc disease - EGR;
- at the posterior cervical sympathetic syndrome - REG;
- if carried out, the lumbar puncture and myelography;
- when indicated for surgical treatment - consultation of a neurosurgeon;
- general urine and blood samples.
