Symptoms can vary from person to person and are heavily dependent on the severity of the ankylosing spondylitis. Some of the more common symptoms include:

  • Back pain, especially in the lower back
  • Stiffness, which is often most severe on waking and improves over the course of the day
  • Pain and/or swelling of one or more joints
  • Intestinal inflammation such as Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis
  • Enthesitis which is inflammation in the area where the tendons and ligaments meet the bone (often occurs at the back of the heel)

Spondylitis is one of the most common causes of neck and back pain. The exact causes of spondylitis are unknown but there are certain factors that increase the risk of spondylitis, including:

  • Age-related wear and tear on the vertebrae
  • A neck injury incurred in the past
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Microfractures caused by osteoporosis
  • Infectious diseases, such as brucellosis that affect the vertebrae

How C7Physio Clinic can help you

Conventional spondylitis treatments focus mainly on pain medications which only manage the symptoms of the condition but do not address the root cause of the problem.

We use some of the most technologically advanced diagnostic and treatment methods to reduce pain and help patients manage spondylitis so that they can lead healthy productive lives.

Digital Diagnostic Testing

Spondylitis affects the structures of the spine and typically causes a ‘hunched forward’ posture. This places a great deal of stress on the muscles that support the spine.

We uses the most advanced spine function test – to pinpoint muscles and structures that have been affected by spondylitis. This allows us to create targeted treatment protocols to strengthen these muscles which reduces pain and improves muscle function and mobility.

Individualized Treatment Protocols

Treatment protocols are unique to each patient depending on how the condition has affected them – this allows spine specialists to provide the best spondylitis treatment for each patient, depending on their individual requirements. Our treatment plans for spondylitis focus on 4 phases – diagnosis, isolation, reverse 1, and reverse 2.

After the initial diagnosis and pain management, our spine specialists will use isolation movements and neurodynamics to help decrease pain. The reverse 1 stage involves core activation to strengthen the targeted muscles while the reverse 2 stage increases the intensity of these medical movements to reduce and even prevent pain recurrence.

It is important to consult a spine specialist as soon as possible to manage spondylitis and reduce your pain so you can lead a full and productive life.
