Flexibility. It is important for a body
to be flexible. One disease that may take flexibility
away is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis is not
curable, but decent care by a knowledgeable
practitioner like your Fort Wayne chiropractor may help lessen
its symptoms and lasting effects. It is an inflammatory disease that in
time can cause your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing
anything brings about less flexibility. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic looks to keep its Fort Wayne
chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.
WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS
Patients coming to
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic regularly have straightforward
conditions that explain their back pain
experience. Sometimes, 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 outside 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 rheumatology
referral was 307 days. (1) Your Fort Wayne chiropractor knows
the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will establish that
referral as necessary.
WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic, being a Fort Wayne back pain
specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it
is a disease that affects the spine.
Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly affects
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 arise. Ankylosing spondylitis doesn’t start
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, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic may be able to help guide 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 Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Fort Wayne
ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS
Diagnosing Fort Wayne ankylosing spondylitis may be complicated
in some cases as symptoms may vary from neck pain and stiffness to
low back pain and hip pain. In some cases, 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 like pain reduction and improved activities of daily living. (2) Your

healthcare colleagues to assist Fort Wayne chiropractic
