What Causes Ankylosing Spondylitis?
Ankylosing spondylitis is an inflammatory condition that creates issues with the joints of the spine. This progressive disease can cause the joints of the spine to slowly fuse over time causing decreased mobility and strength. There is no known cause for this disease, though there is a genetic component to those who do get it.
Physical therapy has been shown to improve mobility, strength, and pain for those with ankylosing spondylitis. The physical therapists at Pro Staff are experts when it comes to this disease and will help you along your health journey. No matter what stage of the disease you are in, we believe in treating each individual patient for their unique and personal goals. We understand how frustrating it is not to have the body move as we want it to, and we want to improve those limitations with you.
Common Symptoms of Ankylosing Spondylitis
- Stiffness and decreased motion throughout the spine
- Pain in the low back and hips after prolonged periods of inactivity
- Reduced strength in the spinal muscles
- Difficulty sitting or standing for extended periods
Treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis
Treatment of ankylosing spondylitis involves a combination of manual therapy, passive modalities, and specific exercises to target any symptoms you may be having. We have a great team that specializes in hands-on care to work on improving mobility and strength. Our goal is to work on all the limitations you may be having and create a plan specific to your movement goals.
As your condition improves, we will work with you on specific movement goals to maintain healthy blood flow to the inflamed joints. This can improve joint mobility and the range of motion of the spine. We understand that this condition is tough to deal with, and it can feel scary not being able to control what your body is doing. Our goal is to help you understand what is going on and how to work with your body to stay healthy.
