Flexibility. It’s vital for a body
to be flexible. One disease that may take flexibility
away is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis isn’t
curable, but beneficial care by a experienced
practitioner like your Auburn 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. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. looks to keep its Auburn
chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.
WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS
Patients coming to
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. often have clear-cut
conditions that explain their back pain
experience. Infrequently, more one-of-a-kind
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 time for diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis from a back
pain diagnosis to a rheumatology
referral was 307 days. (1) Your Auburn chiropractor knows
the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will make that
referral as necessary.
WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C., being a Auburn back pain
specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it
is a spine-related disease.
Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly affects
the spine, especially the low back and occasionally
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, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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 results
in an ankylosing spondylitis spine.
HOW Auburn CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Auburn
ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS
Diagnosing Auburn ankylosing spondylitis may be complex
in some cases as symptoms may range from neck pain and stiffness to
low back pain and hip pain. For some, 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 like pain reduction and improved activities of daily living. (2) Your
Auburn chiropractor effectively and enthusiastically
collaborates with Auburn
healthcare colleagues to help Auburn chiropractic
patients find the gentle care they need.
