The importance of regular medical treatment

One of the most important strategies in proving a disability is by having medical evidence to support your claim. In times when you cannot work and finances are a major struggle you may think it is too much to continue to see your physican(s) but it is extremely important to continue to do so. Your physician who has seen you throughout this time, who knows your disability from a professional medical stand point, can be the defining factor between approval and denial of your claim.

The best and most effective way to show their support is through the medical source statements we request they fill out for us. These forms are crucial in showing the ALJ what your limitations are and describing your condition medically.

In the end having continued to regularly see your treating physicians, and following their medical advice, will make a huge difference in your case.
