Moses Chiropractic helps West Palm Beach ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

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

Patients visiting 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. 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 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 begin 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.
