The Novelli Wellness Center helps Buffalo, NY 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 decent care by a knowledgeable practitioner like your Buffalo, NY chiropractor may help diminish its symptoms and lasting effects. It’s an inflammatory disease that over time can trigger your spinal bones, the vertebrae, to fuse. Fusing anything give rise to less flexibility. The Novelli Wellness Center seeks to maintain flexibility in its Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS IS

Patients visiting The Novelli Wellness Center often have straightforward conditions that describe their back pain experience. Sometimes, more unique conditions like ankylosing spondylitis arrive, 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. Most were diagnosed by other practitioners while 7% were diagnosed by chiropractors or PTs. The median time for diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis from a diagnosis of back pain to a referral to a rheumatologist was 307 days. (1) Your Buffalo, NY chiropractor understands the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis and will make that referral as necessary.

WHAT ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS AFFECTS

The Novelli Wellness Center, being a Buffalo, NY back pain specialist clinic, will see ankylosing spondylitis patients as it is a spine-related disease. Ankylosing spondylitis most commonly affects the spine, especially 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 occur. 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 likely to suffer with ankylosing spondylitis than women. While ankylosing spondylitis does its fusion thing, The Novelli 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.
