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
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. (2) Your
Paramus chiropractor effectively and enthusiastically
teams up with Paramus
healthcare colleagues to help Paramus chiropractic
patients find the gentle care they require.
