Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries helps Manchester ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It’s vital for a body to be flexible. One disease that may take flexibility away is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis isn’t curable, but good care by a experienced practitioner like your Manchester chiropractor may help diminish its symptoms and lasting effects. It is an inflammatory disease that in time can cause your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything makes it less flexible. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries seeks to maintain flexibility in its Manchester chiropractic patients.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients visiting Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries regularly have straightforward conditions that describe their back pain experience. Occasionally, more unique 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 timeframe for diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis from a diagnosis of back pain to a rheumatology referral was 307 days. (1) Your Manchester chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will set up that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries, being a Manchester back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a spinal condition. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently affects the spine, especially 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 arise. Ankylosing spondylitis doesn’t 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, Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries 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 Manchester CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Manchester ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Manchester ankylosing spondylitis may be complex 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 performed in addition to the typical clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, combining medical treatment via a rheumatologist with chiropractic treatment (spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic) can bring about some relief like pain reduction and improved activities of daily living.
