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 makes it less flexible. Complete Health Medical P.C. looks to keep its East Setauket
chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.
WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS
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. (2) Your

healthcare colleagues to assist East Setauket chiropractic
