Hollstrom & Associates Inc helps Largo 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 beneficial care by a experienced practitioner like your Largo chiropractor may help diminish its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that over time can cause your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything makes it less flexible. Hollstrom & Associates Inc seeks to keep its Largo chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients presenting to Hollstrom & Associates Inc frequently have clear-cut conditions that describe their back pain experience. Occasionally, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis appear, 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 back pain diagnosis to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days. (1) Your Largo chiropractor knows the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will set up that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Hollstrom & Associates Inc, being a Largo back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients since it is a disease that affects the spine. Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly affects 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 does not 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 cause fatigue, and men are more prone to get ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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 Largo CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Largo ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Largo 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 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.
