Pflugerville Wellness Center helps Pflugerville 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 decent care by a knowledgeable practitioner like your Pflugerville 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 makes it less flexible. Pflugerville Wellness Center seeks to maintain flexibility in its Pflugerville chiropractic patients.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients coming to Pflugerville Wellness Center frequently have straightforward conditions that describe their back pain experience. Infrequently, more one-of-a-kind 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. The majority were diagnosed by other practitioners while 7% were diagnosed by chiropractors or PTs. The median timeframe for diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis from a diagnosis of back pain to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days. (1) Your Pflugerville chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will make that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Pflugerville Wellness Center, being a Pflugerville back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a spinal condition. Ankylosing spondylitis most frequently 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 quit. 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, Pflugerville Wellness Center 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.

HOW Pflugerville CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Pflugerville ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS
