How do you ask for disability modification at work?

I am disabled due to a spinal cord injury/terrible spine/chronic pain. I currently work at an online public school and I LOVE my job. However, the hours at my desk and other issues are really stressing to my body. I am at the point where I need to ask for disability modifications to my job and I have never dealt with this before. I don’t know what to ask for because I don’t know my rights and what is available. I’m also looking into using short term disability which is another area I’m uninformed in.
Any help/advice/knowledge you could offer would be mightily appreciated. Thanks!
