Cross Chiropractic Center helps Sandy Springs ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It is vital for a body to be flexible. One disease that may prevent flexibility is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis is not curable, but beneficial care by a well-informed practitioner like your Sandy Springs chiropractor may help lessen its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that in time can cause your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything give rise to less flexibility. Cross Chiropractic Center seeks to maintain flexibility in its Sandy Springs chiropractic patients.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients presenting to Cross Chiropractic Center regularly have straightforward conditions that clarify their back pain experience. Occasionally, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis appear, too. In a research investigation of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed in other healthcare settings instead of rheumatology practices. Most 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 Sandy Springs chiropractor understands the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will establish that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Cross Chiropractic Center, being a Sandy Springs 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 arise. Ankylosing spondylitis doesn’t begin 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 cause fatigue, and men are more likely to suffer with ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Cross Chiropractic Center 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 Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Sandy Springs ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Sandy Springs 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 as well as 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.
