Manahawkin Chiropractic Center helps Manahawkin ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It is important for a body to be flexible. One disease that may prevent flexibility is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis is not curable, but decent care by a well-informed practitioner like your Manahawkin chiropractor may help lessen its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that over time can cause your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything brings about less flexibility. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center seeks to keep its Manahawkin chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients presenting to Manahawkin Chiropractic Center regularly have straightforward conditions that explain their back pain experience. Occasionally, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis arrive, too. In a research investigation of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed outside 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 back pain diagnosis to a rheumatology referral was 307 days. (1) Your Manahawkin chiropractor understands the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will set up that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Manahawkin Chiropractic Center, being a Manahawkin 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 occur. Ankylosing spondylitis doesn’t begin 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, Manahawkin Chiropractic 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 Manahawkin CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Manahawkin ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Manahawkin ankylosing spondylitis may be complicated 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 performed as well as the typical clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, mixing 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.
