Rating criteria for back conditions are at 38 CFR 4.71a http://www.benefits....ART4/S4_71a.DOC . Diagnostic Codes (DC) 5237 or 5243 may be appropriate. Review General Rating Formula for Diseases and Injuries of the Spine and Formula for Rating Intervertebral DiscSyndrome Based on Incapacitating Episodes . You can be evaluated under one, not both, sets of criteria.
