Palmer Chiropractic Center helps Lynchburg ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It is important for a body to be flexible. One disease that may take flexibility away is ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis is not curable, but beneficial care by a knowledgeable practitioner like your Lynchburg chiropractor may help lessen its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that in time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything give rise to less flexibility. Palmer Chiropractic Center looks to keep its Lynchburg chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients presenting to Palmer Chiropractic Center often have straightforward conditions that explain their back pain experience. Infrequently, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis turn up, too. In a research investigation of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed outside of rheumatology practices. Most 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 rheumatology referral was 307 days. (1) Your Lynchburg chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will make that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Palmer Chiropractic Center, being a Lynchburg back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it is a disease that affects the spine. 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 occur. 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, Palmer Chiropractic Center may be able to help guide 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 Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Lynchburg ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS
