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
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.
HOW Millville CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Millville
ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS
Diagnosing Millville ankylosing spondylitis may be complex
in some cases as symptoms may range 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 typical
clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, combining medical
treatment via a rheumatologist with chiropractic treatment (spinal
manipulation, Cox® Technic) can draw some relief in terms
of pain reduction and improved activities of daily living. (2) Your
