Where to turn when a physical disorder results in a disability

There are many different types of physical disorders that could lead to an individual in Philadelphia becoming disabled. For example, back injuries resulting from compression fractures or a herniated disk could result in a disability. Injuries to a person's shoulder, wrist, elbow, arm, ankle, knees or hip could also be disabling. In addition, heart conditions and neurological disorders could also cause a physical disability. These are only a few examples of injuries and conditions individuals in Philadelphia suffer from every day.

What complications could stem from a brain injury?

A traumatic brain injury, otherwise known as a TBI, can affect a person for the rest of their life. But, what are some complications that stem from a severe TBI? First of all, a person may be left in a coma or even worse, in a vegetative state. Sometimes these states of consciousness can improve, but, in some cases, they are permanent. Another complication that may stem from a TBI is an increased chance of developing a degenerative brain disease. Such diseases include Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and dementia pugilistica.

53 million Americans report having a disability

Life for people who are living with a disability can present numerous challenges relating not only to an individual's ability to earn a living, but also to independence. In fact, a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that disabilities may be more common than some think.
