Tarrytown Chiropractic helps Tarrytown ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It is vital for a body to be flexible. One disease that may take flexibility away is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis is not curable, but good care by a experienced practitioner like your Tarrytown chiropractor may help diminish its symptoms and lasting effects. It is an inflammatory disease that in time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything makes it less flexible. Tarrytown Chiropractic seeks to keep its Tarrytown chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients presenting to Tarrytown Chiropractic frequently have straightforward conditions that make clear their back pain experience. Sometimes, more one-of-a-kind conditions like ankylosing spondylitis arrive, 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 Tarrytown chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will establish that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Tarrytown Chiropractic, being a Tarrytown back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it is a spinal condition. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently involves 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 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, Tarrytown 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 results in an ankylosing spondylitis spine.

HOW Tarrytown CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Tarrytown ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Tarrytown 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 as well as the classic clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, combining medical treatment via a rheumatologist with chiropractic treatment (spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic) can bring about some relief in terms of pain reduction and improved activities of daily living.
