Pseudarthrosis, which is commonly referred to as a nonunion or false joint, is a bone fracture that will not mend because the body perceives bone fragments as separate bones and does not attempt to unite them. Pseudarthrosis occurs from inadequate healing after the fracture, and can result from a failed attempt of spinal fusion. Pain recurs in a very similar location to that before surgery.
I represent a 42 year old grocery store manager with back problems. The State agency denied his Social Security Disability (“SSD”) application even though diagnostic testing revealed lumbar radiculopathy. However, weeks after I submitted a report from the treating spine specialist diagnosing the claimant with pseudarthrosis, his SSD benefits were approved.Previous Next
