Chiropractic Solutions helps San Jose ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It’s important for a body to be flexible. One disease that may prevent flexibility is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis isn’t curable, but beneficial care by a well-informed practitioner like your San Jose chiropractor may help lessen its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that over time can cause your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything give rise to less flexibility. Chiropractic Solutions seeks to keep its San Jose chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients visiting Chiropractic Solutions regularly have straightforward conditions that describe their back pain experience. Occasionally, more one-of-a-kind conditions like ankylosing spondylitis turn up, too. In a study of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed in other healthcare settings instead 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 back pain diagnosis to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days. (1) Your San Jose chiropractor understands the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will establish that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Chiropractic Solutions, being a San Jose back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a spinal condition. Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly involves the spine, particularly the low back and occasionally the sacroiliac joint. Wherever tendons and ligaments fasten to bone (spine, breastbone to ribs, hip, shoulder joint), ankylosing spondylitis may occur. 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 make its sufferer tired, and men are more prone to get ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Chiropractic Solutions may be able to help influence 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 comes to an ankylosing spondylitis spine.

HOW San Jose CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP San Jose ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing San Jose ankylosing spondylitis may be complicated in some cases as symptoms may vary 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 classic clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, mixing medical treatment via a rheumatologist with chiropractic treatment (spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic) can bring about some relief in terms of pain reduction and improved activities of daily living.
