Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology helps Plymouth ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It is important 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 well-informed practitioner like your Plymouth chiropractor may help lessen its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that in time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything makes it less flexible. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology looks to keep its Plymouth chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients presenting to Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology frequently have straightforward conditions that make clear their back pain experience. Occasionally, 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 time for diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis from a back pain diagnosis to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days. (1) Your Plymouth chiropractor understands the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will make that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology, being a Plymouth back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a spine-related disease. Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly involves the spine, particularly 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 occur. 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 make its sufferer tired, and men are more prone to get ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology may be able to help influence 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 comes to an ankylosing spondylitis spine.

HOW Plymouth CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Plymouth ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Plymouth ankylosing spondylitis may be complicated in some cases as symptoms may vary from neck pain and stiffness to low back pain and hip pain. For some, imaging (MRI, xray) and lab tests are performed as well as the typical clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, combining 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.
