Flexibility. It’s vital for a body
to be flexible. One disease that may take flexibility
away is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis isn’t
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 cause fatigue, 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 in addition to 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. (2) Your
