4 treatment options for ankylosing spondylosis

Ever wondered how you could reduce the pain brought about by ankylosing spondylosis? You'll agree with the fact that this disease could really be painful and disabling at times... If left untreated, it could become the cause of your spine's immobility. Surely, you wouldn't want that to happen, right?

There are many treatment options for ankylosing spondylosis, all of which are focused on reducing the pain, inflammation, and stiffness that results from the disease. Treatments also work to prevent damages to worsen, slow down the disease, and prevent further deformities. Basically, all of these will enable you to continue doing the activities that are important for your well being. The following are the treatments that your doctor may prescribe:

  • Physical therapy :- Through sessions with a physical therapist, you will be taught ways
  • on how to manage to move without feeling pain, or at the least, moving with less pain. The therapist may also teach you how to use heat and cold on dealing with stiffness and inflammation. You will also be informed and trained on doing several exercises to maintain proper posture and to lessen the deformities on your bones. Lastly, since ankylosing spondylosis may affect one's lung capacity, therapists will give instructions on how you could expand your lungs and improve your breathing capacity.
  • Medications :- There are several types of drugs for ankylosing spondylosis, and your
  • doctor will prescribe one depending on your case and on your chief complaints.
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) will lessen the inflammation and pain. This is usually the first medications that will be given to you.
  • Corticosteroids will also deal with the inflammation of the joints.
  • Disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) will ease pain not only on the pelvis and spine but also on other joints of the body.
  • Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors. This is a new generation of drugs that are being used for spondylosis. It has been proven effective in blocking TNF that causes inflammation.
  • Surgery :- For the very severe or rapidly advancing cases of ankylosing spondylosis,
  • surgery will be very beneficial. Replacements for the joints and correction of deformities of the spine may be done. These surgeries, however, are risky so they are not a common choice of treatment unless it is very necessary.
  • Alternative or complementary treatments. :- People may use unconventional forms of
  • medicines to avoid experiencing side effects, or they may use this to complement other treatments to have quicker and better results. Examples of these are:
  • Acupuncture. Pressure is used to stimulate vital points in the body. In this way, the nervous system and the spine will be excited and more chemicals that will lessen pain and inflammation will be produced.
  • Massage. Having regular gentle massage may help reduce the pain and inflammation caused by the spondylosis. It may also lessen the stiffness and improve the blood circulation.

Early diagnosis and treatment of ankylosing spondylosis will prevent the disease from inhibiting you to live your life without feeling so much pain, or without being immobile. Several treatment options have been provided. Your job is to talk to a doctor and ask which the best option for you is.
