Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation helps Tonawanda ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It’s vital for a body to be flexible. One disease that may take flexibility away is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis isn’t curable, but beneficial care by a well-informed practitioner like your Tonawanda chiropractor may help diminish its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that in time can cause your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything makes it less flexible. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation seeks to keep its Tonawanda chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients visiting Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation regularly have straightforward conditions that clarify their back pain experience. Occasionally, more one-of-a-kind conditions like ankylosing spondylitis turn up, too. In a research investigation of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed in other healthcare settings instead of rheumatology practices. Most were diagnosed by other practitioners while 7% were diagnosed by chiropractors or PTs. The median timeframe for diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis from a back pain diagnosis to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days. (1) Your Tonawanda chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will establish that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation, being a Tonawanda back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it is a spinal condition. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently affects the spine, particularly the low back and occasionally the sacroiliac joint. Wherever tendons and ligaments fasten to bone (spine, breastbone to ribs, hip, shoulder joint), ankylosing spondylitis may occur. Ankylosing spondylitis doesn’t start and does its thing then quit. It may come and go, be worse and better, be off and on, for months or years. Ankylosing spondylitis may make its sufferer tired, and men are more prone to get ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation may be able to help guide its fusing ways to help keep as much flexibility in its fused areas and an upright posture as possible instead of the hyperkyphosis curving that often comes to an ankylosing spondylitis spine.

HOW Tonawanda CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Tonawanda ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Tonawanda ankylosing spondylitis may be complicated in some cases as symptoms may range from neck pain and stiffness to low back pain and hip pain. In some cases, imaging (MRI, xray) and lab tests are done in addition to the typical clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, combining medical treatment via a rheumatologist with chiropractic treatment (spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic) can draw some relief in terms of pain reduction and improved activities of daily living.
