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
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. (2) Your
