These VA claims are worth big money because the highest rating for radiculopathy is 90% VA Disability Rating and the highest rating for peripheral neuropathy is an 80% VA Disability Rating.
VA Claims for Radiculopathy
For radiculopathy, the best objective medical evidence you can get your hands on is an MRI. Radiculopathy typically stems from the nerve root from something like a herniated or bulging disc and that affects other parts of your body like your upper and lower extremities.
VA Claims for Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral Neuropathy is different than radiculopathy because it doesn’t stem from the spine. It happens because there is nerve damage somewhere between the spine and the affected body part. This is why an EMG test is so important because electrodes will be connected between your spine and your affected body part and send electric pulses through the nerve to measure the amount of damage that you have.
