Complete Health Medical P.C. helps East Setauket ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It’s important for a body to be flexible. One disease that may take flexibility away is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis isn’t curable, but beneficial care by a well-informed practitioner like your East Setauket chiropractor may help lessen its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that in time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything brings about less flexibility. Complete Health Medical P.C. looks to keep its East Setauket chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients visiting Complete Health Medical P.C. regularly 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. 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 rheumatology referral was 307 days. (1) Your East Setauket chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will set up that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Complete Health Medical P.C., being a East Setauket back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a disease that affects the spine. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently involves the spine, particularly the low back and sometimes the sacroiliac joint. Wherever tendons and ligaments fasten to bone (spine, breastbone to ribs, hip, shoulder joint), ankylosing spondylitis may arise. Ankylosing spondylitis does not 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 prone to get ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Complete Health Medical P.C. 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 East Setauket CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP East Setauket ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing East Setauket ankylosing spondylitis may be complicated in some cases as symptoms may range from neck pain and stiffness to low back pain and hip pain. For some, imaging (MRI, xray) and lab tests are done in addition to the typical clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, mixing 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.
