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

Flexibility. It’s important for a body to be flexible. One disease that may prevent flexibility is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis isn’t curable, but decent care by a well-informed practitioner like your Minster chiropractor may help diminish its symptoms and lasting effects. It is an inflammatory disease that in time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything makes it less flexible. Minster Chiropractic Center looks to keep its Minster chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients presenting to Minster Chiropractic Center regularly have clear-cut conditions that make clear their back pain experience. Infrequently, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis turn up, too. In a study of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed outside of rheumatology practices. The majority 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 Minster chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will set up that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Minster Chiropractic Center, being a Minster back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a disease that affects the spine. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently 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 occur. Ankylosing spondylitis does not start 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 make its sufferer tired, and men are more likely to suffer with ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Minster 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 Minster CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Minster ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Minster ankylosing spondylitis may be complex in some cases as symptoms may range from neck pain and stiffness to low back pain and hip pain. In some cases, imaging (MRI, xray) and lab tests are performed 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.
