Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation helps Baton Rouge ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It is important for a body to be flexible. One disease that may prevent flexibility is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis is not curable, but decent care by a experienced practitioner like your Baton Rouge 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 brings about less flexibility. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation seeks to keep its Baton Rouge chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients coming to Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation frequently have clear-cut conditions that make clear their back pain experience. Infrequently, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis turn up, 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

Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation, being a Baton Rouge back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it is a spinal condition. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently affects 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 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, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation may be able to help influence 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 comes to an ankylosing spondylitis spine.
