Hi Veterans, in this post, I will be covering VA disability ratings for back pain criteria in detail.
Many veterans suffer from various back conditions due to their active duty military service and perhaps you’re wondering if you can get VA disability for back pain.
Generally, VA disability ratings for back pain range from 10% to 100% and depend upon the frequency, severity, and duration of symptoms, including Painful Motion, Limitation of Range of Motion (ROM), and Functional Loss or Impairment.
In addition, Back Pain is a common secondary VA disability claim, especially Radiculopathy secondary to back conditions or back pain.
Okay, let’s jump into some important definitions first because these principles are critical to understand and may affect your final VA disability rating for back pain.
