Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic helps Montreal ankylosing spondylitis patients with their back pain.

Flexibility. It is vital 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 Montreal chiropractor may help lessen its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that over time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything makes it less flexible. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic seeks to keep its Montreal chiropractic patients as flexible as possible.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients coming to Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic regularly have clear-cut conditions that explain their back pain experience. Sometimes, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis appear, too. In a study of 3336 patients with ankylosing spondylitis, most ankylosing spondylitis patients were diagnosed outside 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. (1) Your Montreal chiropractor understands the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will establish that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic, being a Montreal back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a spine-related disease. Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly involves the spine, particularly the low back and occasionally the sacroiliac joint. Wherever tendons and ligaments attach 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 make its sufferer tired, and men are more likely to suffer with ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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 comes to an ankylosing spondylitis spine.

HOW Montreal CHIROPRACTIC MAY HELP Montreal ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS SUFFERERS

Diagnosing Montreal ankylosing spondylitis may be complex 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 done 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 like pain reduction and improved activities of daily living.
