Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center helps Paramus ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It is vital for a body to be flexible. One disease that may take flexibility away is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis is not curable, but good care by a experienced practitioner like your Paramus 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 give rise to less flexibility. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center seeks to keep its Paramus chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients visiting Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center often have clear-cut conditions that explain their back pain experience. Infrequently, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis arrive, too. In a study of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed in other healthcare settings instead 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 rheumatology referral was 307 days. (1) Your Paramus chiropractor understands the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will set up that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center, being a Paramus back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a spinal condition. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently 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 doesn’t start 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 make its sufferer tired, and men are more prone to get ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 Paramus CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Paramus ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Paramus ankylosing spondylitis may be complex in some cases as symptoms may vary from neck pain and stiffness to low back pain and hip pain. In some cases, imaging (MRI, xray) and lab tests are done as well as the typical clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, mixing medical treatment via a rheumatologist with chiropractic treatment (spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic) can draw some relief like pain reduction and improved activities of daily living.
