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
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. (2) Your
