Spinal Care Clinic helps Burlington and Hamilton ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It is important for a body to be flexible. One disease that may prevent flexibility is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis is not curable, but good care by a experienced practitioner like your Burlington and Hamilton 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 makes it less flexible. Spinal Care Clinic seeks to maintain flexibility in its Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients visiting Spinal Care Clinic often have straightforward conditions that make clear their back pain experience. Occasionally, more one-of-a-kind conditions like ankylosing spondylitis appear, too. In a study of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed outside of rheumatology practices. Most 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 Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor understands the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will set up that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Spinal Care Clinic, being a Burlington and Hamilton back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a spine-related disease. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently involves the spine, particularly 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 arise. Ankylosing spondylitis does not 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, Spinal Care 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 results in an ankylosing spondylitis spine.

HOW Burlington and Hamilton CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Burlington and Hamilton ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Burlington and Hamilton ankylosing spondylitis may be complex 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 done 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 in terms of pain reduction and improved activities of daily living.
