New Roads Chiropractic Center helps New Roads ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

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.
