As Spondyloarthropathies covers a wide range of arthritic conditions that affect the joints, the symptom will vary depending on the type of spondyloarthritis. Some of the most common symptoms associated with the condition include the following:

  • Lower back pain is the most prominent symptom and is usually the first to surface
  • Spine mobility progressively deteriorates due to eventual fusion of the vertebrae
  • In case of peripheral spondyloarthritis, swelling is likely to be observed in the arms and legs, but this is rather uncommon
  • Patients may experience bouts of joint inflammation
  • Joint inflammation is often accompanied by fatigue

The precise causes of spondyloarthropathies remain unknown to date, but some are associated with specific genes, such as the HLA-B27 in the case of ankylosing spondylitis. Although the gene itself is not responsible for spondyloarthritic conditions, it is associated with an increased risk. Researchers are still investigating the relationship of genetics in the development of spondyloarthropathies.

Some studies also point towards a connection between imbalances in gut flora and inflammatory disease. Reactive arthritis is the only exception since it is caused by a bacterial infection, typically involving a food-borne of chlamydia infection.

Conventional treatments for spondyloarthropathies include NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and other pain medications. The long term use of NSAIDs is associated with stomach ulcers, an increased risk of bleeding, and liver and kidney problems. Unfortunately, there is no permanent cure for spondyloarthropathies which means that patients are forced to take pain medications regularly to manage their pain which greatly increases their risk of these side effects.

How C7Physio Clinic Can Help You ?

Conventional spondyloarthropathies 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 help patients manage their condition and lead healthy productive lives.

Digital Diagnostic Testing

Over 80% of all back pain remains undiagnosed and doctors refer to the pain as ‘unspecified’. We use the most advanced spine function test – to pinpoint muscles and structures that have been affected by spondyloarthropathies. This allows us to create targeted treatment protocols to strengthen these muscles to improve muscle function and increase 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 spondyloarthropathies treatment for each patient, depending on their individual requirements.

Technologically Advanced Methods Of Pain Management

We 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. We also offer special counseling and alternative therapies to help patients with spondyloarthropathies understand the physical and psychological changes associated with this condition.

It is important to consult a spine specialist as soon as possible to manage spondyloarthropathies and reduce your pain.
