Flexibility. It’s important for a body
to be flexible. One disease that may prevent flexibility is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis isn’t
curable, but beneficial care by a knowledgeable
practitioner like your West Palm Beach chiropractor may help diminish
its symptoms and lasting effects. It is an inflammatory disease that in
time can cause your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing
anything brings about less flexibility. Moses Chiropractic seeks to keep its West Palm Beach
chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.
WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS
Moses Chiropractic frequently 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 study 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 back
pain diagnosis to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days. (1) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor understands
the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will set up that
referral as necessary.
WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS
Moses Chiropractic, being a West Palm Beach back pain
specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it
is a spine-related disease.
Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly involves
the spine, especially the low back and sometimes
the sacroiliac joint. Wherever tendons and ligaments fasten 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, Moses 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 West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP West Palm Beach
ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS
Diagnosing West Palm Beach 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, mixing 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
