Malverne Health & Wellness helps Malverne 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 decent care by a knowledgeable practitioner like your Malverne 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. Malverne Health & Wellness seeks to maintain flexibility in its Malverne chiropractic patients.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients presenting to Malverne Health & Wellness regularly have clear-cut conditions that make clear their back pain experience. Occasionally, more one-of-a-kind conditions like ankylosing spondylitis arrive, 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. The majority were diagnosed by other practitioners while 7% were diagnosed by chiropractors or PTs. The median timeframe for diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis from a diagnosis of back pain to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days. (1) Your Malverne chiropractor understands the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will set up that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Malverne Health & Wellness, being a Malverne back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it is a spine-related disease. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently involves the spine, especially the low back and sometimes 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 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, Malverne Health & Wellness 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 Malverne CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Malverne ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Malverne ankylosing spondylitis may be complicated in some cases as symptoms may vary 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, mixing medical treatment via a rheumatologist with chiropractic treatment (spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic) can bring about some relief like pain reduction and improved activities of daily living.
