Joint injuries, deterioration can limit physical capabilities

Dealing with a persistent medical issue can completely change a person's life as he or she knows it. Until people experience the effects of a physical impairment or illness, it may be difficult to understand what kind of disruption it can create in everyday and professional life.

As the baby-boom generation gradually grows older, health professionals are expecting an increase in the demand for medical care. Oftentimes, these health concerns are wear and tear related to aging, particularly to joints. Damaged or injured knee and hip joints can create immense pain, making mobility a very serious challenge.

Since joint-replacement techniques have been honed over the last few decades, more and more people are pursuing joint-replacement surgery. According to an estimate published on, more than 1 million hip and knee replacements surgeries were performed in 2010. With a growing elderly population, it's possible that this number will increase.

Of course, recovering from joint injuries may not be a short or simple process. Furthermore, joint replacement may not be a viable solution for everyone. As such, people may need to look for solutions to provide support while they mend their injuries. Social Security disability insurance may be one option worth considering if a joint injury prevents a person from being able to work.

When joint replacement surgery -- or other treatments -- are effective, people can look forward to reduced or eliminated joint pain. Furthermore, effective treatments can help people move away from living with a disability. SSD benefits do not necessarily have to be permanent, but they may be an option when people are in need of financial support.
