Wilson Family Chiropractic helps Millville 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 good care by a experienced practitioner like your Millville 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 give rise to less flexibility. Wilson Family Chiropractic looks to keep its Millville chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients visiting Wilson Family Chiropractic regularly have clear-cut conditions that clarify their back pain experience. Sometimes, more one-of-a-kind conditions like ankylosing spondylitis turn up, too. In a research investigation of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed outside 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 rheumatology referral was 307 days. (1) Your Millville chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will establish that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Wilson Family Chiropractic, being a Millville 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 occur. Ankylosing spondylitis does not begin 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 cause fatigue, and men are more prone to get ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Wilson Family Chiropractic may be able to help guide 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 results in an ankylosing spondylitis spine.
