Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. helps Auburn ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

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 maintain flexibility in its Auburn chiropractic patients.

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.
