Layden Chiropractic helps Plainville ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

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

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients visiting Layden Chiropractic frequently have straightforward conditions that describe their back pain experience. Occasionally, more one-of-a-kind conditions like ankylosing spondylitis appear, too. In a study of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed in other healthcare settings instead of rheumatology practices. The majority were diagnosed by other practitioners while 7% were diagnosed by chiropractors or PTs. The median timeframe for diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis from a diagnosis of back pain to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days. (1) Your Plainville chiropractor understands the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will establish that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Layden Chiropractic, being a Plainville back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a spine-related disease. Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly involves the spine, especially the low back and occasionally the sacroiliac joint. Wherever tendons and ligaments attach to bone (spine, breastbone to ribs, hip, shoulder joint), ankylosing spondylitis may arise. Ankylosing spondylitis does not start and does its thing then stop. 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, Layden Chiropractic 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 Plainville CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Plainville ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Plainville ankylosing spondylitis may be complex 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, mixing medical treatment via a rheumatologist with chiropractic treatment (spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic) can draw some relief like pain reduction and improved activities of daily living.
