Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre helps Toronto ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It’s vital for a body to be flexible. One disease that may prevent flexibility is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis isn’t curable, but good care by a experienced practitioner like your Toronto chiropractor may help diminish its symptoms and lasting effects. It is an inflammatory disease that in time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything give rise to less flexibility. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre looks to keep its Toronto chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients visiting Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre often have clear-cut conditions that explain their back pain experience. Infrequently, 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 back pain diagnosis to a rheumatology referral was 307 days.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, being a Toronto 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 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 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 prone to get ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 results in an ankylosing spondylitis spine.

HOW Toronto CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Toronto ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Toronto ankylosing spondylitis may be complicated 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 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.
