Long Term Disability Therapy


What is a long term disability?


Long term disability is generally known as a prolonged state in which someone experiences impairments, activity limitations that affect their ability to participate, work and have the same quality of life as others. These impairments and limitations are frequently experienced with some form of mental or physical pain, which is often the most prevalent symptom associated with long term disability. Whereas short term disability tends to be something that can be improved or even corrected with a shorter period of time and applied therapy, people who have a long term disability generally experience their symptoms for much longer, and sometimes more severely. Accidents, diseases and conditions are often the cause and the effects can be felt by a person for the rest of their life. Because long term disability can limit an individual's ability to perform activities such as work, they often apply through insurance for compensation to allow them to continue their life comfortably and receive the treatment they need to improve their quality of life and ease any symptoms they are experiencing. 


How do you treat long term disability?

Long term disability therapy involves recurring treatments in order to ease the symptoms individuals experience as a result of an accident, disease or condition that significantly hinders their ability and wellbeing. It is critical to receive treatment for long term disability because left untreated, symptoms can worsen and pain experienced is often debilitating, which can substantially harm a person’s quality of life. With treatment, many symptoms can be improved. Some people are able to regain or partially regain functions they had lost or experience significantly less pain, sometimes meaning they can engage in activities they previously were unable to. If you are experiencing pain from a long term disability, you aren’t alone. There is help available to you that could substantially change your day-to-day life for the better.

These are some frequent symptoms experienced from long term disability:

Sciatica is a specific kind of back pain associated with the sciatic nerve. This nerve runs down the leg from the lower back. When the sciatic nerve is in pain, it is often described as a consistent burning or shooting pain that radiates in this area. Numbness may also occur.



Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal disorder that typically causes widespread pain, fatigue, insomnia and mood problems in individuals who experience it.
