Amelia Chiropractic Clinic helps Fernandina Beach ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It is vital 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 knowledgeable practitioner like your Fernandina Beach chiropractor may help diminish its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that in time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything give rise to less flexibility. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic seeks to keep its Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients coming to Amelia Chiropractic Clinic regularly have clear-cut conditions that clarify their back pain experience. Sometimes, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis arrive, too. In a study 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 diagnosis of back pain to a rheumatology referral was 307 days. (1) Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will establish that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Amelia Chiropractic Clinic, being a Fernandina Beach back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it is a disease that affects the spine. 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 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 cause fatigue, and men are more likely to suffer with ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic 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 Fernandina Beach CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Fernandina Beach ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Fernandina Beach 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 classic 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.
