Philadelphia Multiple Sclerosis Attorney for Medical Professionals Seeking Disability Insurance Benefits

Multiple Sclerosis, commonly known as MS, is a debilitating disease that comes with a lot of uncertainties, but your disability insurance benefits should not be one of them. With nationwide experience, a Philadelphia multiple sclerosis attorney at Seltzer & Associates is equipped to discuss your disability insurance benefits.

Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms in Medical Professionals

Multiple Sclerosis is a disease affecting the central nervous system with scarring, preventing the central nervous system from operating correctly. Unfortunately, MS manifests in a variety of ways and progresses at different rates. This means that patients are subject to a multitude of tests and treatments, often waiting significant periods of time before a diagnosis can be made and the appropriate comprehensive treatment plans can be effectuated. The lack of diagnosis may delay the receipt of entitled disability insurance benefits. That is why an experienced multiple sclerosis lawyer is critical to your disability insurance claim and can help you obtain the disability insurance benefits to which you are entitled. 

Symptoms of multiple sclerosis vary widely, but there are some more common symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis. These symptoms are just some of the many ways in which multiple sclerosis impacts our clients lives and the ability to perform their specialties. These include:

  • Numbness and tingling in the face, body, or extremities, which is especially devastating to surgeons. If they do not have the fine manual dexterity, they cannot manipulate the surgical tools necessary for performing the surgical procedures on their patients.
  • Vision problems including blurred vision, distortions, and eye pain, which impairs the ability of physicians to examine and treat patients.
  • Cognitive brain changes, including difficulty in learning, processing, and retaining new information. In addition, organizational skills, problem solving, and focus can also be impaired. This diminished cognitive function makes it difficult or often impossible for our clients to perform the important duties of their medical specialties. 
  • Hearing loss, which inhibits the ability to make full observations and obtain necessary information. Hearing loss can result in not correctly hearing their patients, or members of a surgical team, missed or misunderstood information presented, and can also result in dangers to patients if the full information is not processed by a doctor.
  • Muscle spasms and tremors, both which prevent doctors from conducting thorough examinations on patients, and prevent doctors from performing surgical procedures since muscle spasms and tremors can cause impairment and prevent the ability to effectively manipulate surgical tools as needed.

Treating Multiple Sclerosis in Medical Professionals

With so many symptoms, it is difficult to determine where to begin with treatment of multiple sclerosis. Comprehensive treatment plans include treating the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, slowing the progression of disease, managing relapses of the disease, and engaging in rehabilitation protocols to maintain or improve bodily function due to impairments caused by multiple sclerosis. Mental and emotional health are also key to fighting the progression of multiple sclerosis.
