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 decent care by a well-informed
practitioner like your Murfreesboro chiropractor may help lessen
its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that over
time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing
anything brings about less flexibility. Most Chiropractic Clinic seeks to keep its Murfreesboro
chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.
WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS
Patients presenting to
Most Chiropractic Clinic often have clear-cut
conditions that explain 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 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 rheumatology
referral was 307 days. (1) Your Murfreesboro chiropractor understands
the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will establish that
referral as necessary.
WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS
Most Chiropractic Clinic, being a Murfreesboro back pain
specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it
is a disease that affects the spine.
Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly affects
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 doesn’t start
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 make
its sufferer tired, and men are more prone to get ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its
fusion thing, Most Chiropractic 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 Murfreesboro CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Murfreesboro
ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS
Diagnosing Murfreesboro ankylosing spondylitis may be complex
in some cases as symptoms may range from neck pain and stiffness to
low back pain and hip pain. In some cases, 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 draw some relief in terms
of pain reduction and improved activities of daily living. (2) Your

healthcare colleagues to help Murfreesboro chiropractic
patients find the gentle care they require.
