Back And Neck Care Center helps Severna Park ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It’s vital for a body to be flexible. One disease that may prevent flexibility is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis isn’t curable, but beneficial care by a knowledgeable practitioner like your Severna Park chiropractor may help lessen its symptoms and lasting effects. It is an inflammatory disease that over time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything give rise to less flexibility. Back And Neck Care Center seeks to keep its Severna Park chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients coming to Back And Neck Care Center often have straightforward conditions that make clear their back pain experience. Sometimes, more unique 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 time for diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis from a back pain diagnosis to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Back And Neck Care Center, being a Severna Park back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it is a spine-related disease. 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 does not 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 cause fatigue, and men are more likely to suffer with ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Back And Neck Care Center may be able to help influence 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.
