Ankylosing Spondylitis: What Is It?

Ankylosing Spondylitis is a condition that causes long-term arthritis in the spine. The disease is inflammatory in nature and affects the joints and bones that connect to the spine. This inflammation causes issues with flexibility and can lead to curvature of the spine.

Some of the symptoms of the condition include:

  • Lower back or hip pain
  • Stiffness of the back
  • Compression fractures
  • Neurological problems

Treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis in NY

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for Ankylosing Spondylitis, which means it is a disease that you will live with for the rest of your life. However, there is treatment to reduce and alleviate the pain that is experienced, and the goal of treatment is to do just that.

You should seek out treatment the moment you think there may be a problem because early treatment can help reduce the chances of a permanent spinal deformity.

One of the most common treatments for Ankylosing Spondylitis is PRP or stem cell therapy. These treatment options are most effective in the earliest stages of the disease. Once the disease has caused irreversible joint damage, it can be difficult to find relief from the pain.

PRP and stem cell therapy are also useful when it comes to reliving the pain and side effects from spinal fusion, which may occur later on with Ankylosing Spondylitis. PRP injections will work with your body’s own platelets to accelerate tissue repair and healing. In addition, it will work to help tissue regrowth, which will improve blood flow to the damaged areas.
