Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center helps Pensacola ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It’s important for a body to be flexible. One disease that may take flexibility away is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis isn’t curable, but good care by a well-informed practitioner like your Pensacola chiropractor may help diminish its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that in time can cause your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything give rise to less flexibility. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center looks to maintain flexibility in its Pensacola chiropractic patients.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients presenting to Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center regularly have clear-cut conditions that explain their back pain experience. Sometimes, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis appear, too. In a research investigation of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed in other healthcare settings instead 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 diagnosis of back pain to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center, being a Pensacola back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it is a disease that affects the spine. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently affects the spine, especially the low back and occasionally the sacroiliac joint. Wherever tendons and ligaments attach to bone (spine, breastbone to ribs, hip, shoulder joint), ankylosing spondylitis may arise. Ankylosing spondylitis doesn’t 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 likely to suffer with ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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 Pensacola CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Pensacola ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Pensacola 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 typical clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, mixing medical treatment via a rheumatologist with chiropractic treatment (spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic) can bring about some relief in terms of pain reduction and improved activities of daily living.
