Aaron Chiropractic Clinic helps Fort Wayne 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 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 give rise to 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.
