Flexibility. It is vital for a body
to be flexible. One disease that may prevent flexibility is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis is not
curable, but beneficial care by a experienced
practitioner like your New Roads chiropractor may help lessen
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. New Roads Chiropractic Center seeks to keep its New Roads
chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.
WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS
Patients presenting to
New Roads Chiropractic Center often have straightforward
conditions that clarify their back pain
experience. Sometimes, more one-of-a-kind
conditions like ankylosing spondylitis turn up, 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 back
pain diagnosis to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days. (1) Your New Roads chiropractor understands
the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will set up that
referral as necessary.
WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS
New Roads Chiropractic Center, being a New Roads back pain
specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it
is a spinal condition.
Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly affects
the spine, particularly the low back and sometimes
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 begin
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 cause fatigue, and men are more prone to get ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its
fusion thing, New Roads Chiropractic Center may be able to help influence its
fusing ways to help maintain 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 New Roads CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP New Roads
ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS
Diagnosing New Roads ankylosing spondylitis may be complex
in some cases as symptoms may vary from neck pain and stiffness to
low back pain and hip pain. For some, imaging (MRI, xray)
and lab tests are done as well as the classic
clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, combining 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
New Roads chiropractor effectively and eagerly
collaborates with New Roads
healthcare colleagues to assist New Roads chiropractic
patients find the gentle care they require.
