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
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. (1) Your Toronto chiropractor understands
the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will make that
referral as necessary.
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. (2) Your
Toronto chiropractor effectively and eagerly
collaborates with Toronto
healthcare colleagues to help Toronto chiropractic
patients find the gentle care they require.
