Lakeshore Chiropractic helps Two Rivers ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It is vital for a body to be flexible. One disease that may prevent flexibility is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis is not curable, but good care by a knowledgeable practitioner like your Two Rivers chiropractor may help lessen 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. Lakeshore Chiropractic looks to maintain flexibility in its Two Rivers chiropractic patients.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients presenting to Lakeshore Chiropractic frequently have clear-cut conditions that describe their back pain experience. Occasionally, 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 Two Rivers chiropractor understands the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will establish that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Lakeshore Chiropractic, being a Two Rivers back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since 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 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 cause fatigue, and men are more likely to suffer with ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Lakeshore Chiropractic 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 Two Rivers CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Two Rivers ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Two Rivers 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 performed as well as 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.
