Hutter Chiropractic Office helps Groton 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 decent care by a knowledgeable practitioner like your Groton chiropractor may help diminish its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that in time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything brings about less flexibility. Hutter Chiropractic Office looks to maintain flexibility in its Groton chiropractic patients.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients visiting Hutter Chiropractic Office frequently have straightforward conditions that make clear their back pain experience. Infrequently, more one-of-a-kind 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 referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days. (1) Your Groton chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will make that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Hutter Chiropractic Office, being a Groton back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a spine-related disease. Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly involves the spine, especially 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 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, Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 results in an ankylosing spondylitis spine.

HOW Groton CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Groton ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Groton 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 performed as well as 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.
