The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR helps Colorado Springs 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 decent care by a well-informed practitioner like your Colorado Springs 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. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR seeks to maintain flexibility in its Colorado Springs chiropractic patients.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients presenting to The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR often have clear-cut conditions that describe their back pain experience. Sometimes, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis arrive, 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 time for diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis from a diagnosis of back pain to a rheumatology referral was 307 days. (1) Your Colorado Springs chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will set up that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR, being a Colorado Springs back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it is a disease that affects the spine. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently 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 likely to suffer with ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 comes to an ankylosing spondylitis spine.

HOW Colorado Springs CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Colorado Springs ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Colorado Springs ankylosing spondylitis may be complex 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 classic clinical examination. Once diagnosed though, mixing 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.
