Convention treatment for ankylosing spondylitis depends almost solely on anti-inflammatory drugs, opioid painkillers, and corticosteroid injections. However, these medications have serious side effects; since there is no cure for ankylosing spondylitis, the long-term use of these medications increases the risk of other health complications. Similarly, conventional physiotherapy for ankylosing spondylitis may offer some benefits but again, this may be limited as most physiotherapists do not isolate the affected muscles but instead focus on muscle groups.
How C7Physio Clinic Can Help You
C7Physio Clinic uses the most advanced spine function test to reveal weak areas in the spine and back. This helps our spine specialists identify key areas that require attention so that these muscles can be strengthened. This prevents stiffness, improves muscle function, and increases mobility.
Individualised Treatment Protocols
Ankylosing spondylitis causes a decrease in chest expansion; supervised medical movements will help to open up your chest and prevent ankylosing spondylitis breathing problems. Treatment protocols are unique to each patient depending on how the condition has affected them – this allows spine specialists to provide the best ankylosing spondylitis treatment for each patient, depending on their individual requirements.
Technologically Advanced Methods Of Pain Management
C7Physio also provides microcurrent therapy as a safe alternative to pain medication as it does not cause any side effects. This therapy uses very low-level electrical currents to reduce muscle and nerve pain and reduce inflammation. The benefits of microcurrent therapy accrue over time so several sessions will prove greater pain relief benefits. C7Physio also offers counseling and alternative therapies to help patients with ankylosing spondylitis understand the physical and psychological changes associated with this condition.
It is important to consult a spine specialitst as soon as possible to slow down the progression of anklosing spondilits, reduce your pain, and manage your condition.
