Can people with connective tissue disorders work?
Working With a Disability
Yes, people with connective tissue disorders can work. The ability to work may depend on the severity of the disorder and the type of job. Some individuals with connective tissue disorders may need to make adjustments to their work environment or schedule to accommodate their condition. For example, they may need to take breaks more frequently, modify their workstation or use adaptive devices. In some cases, people with severe connective tissue disorders may be unable to work and may qualify for disability benefits. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider and employer to determine what accommodations can be made to allow for safe and productive work.
