What’s Ankylosing Spondylitis?

Ankylosing spondylitis is a rare type of arthritis that causes inflammation in the spinal joints, making the spine prone to pain, injuries, and many other complications. Ankylosing means fused bones and spondylitis means the inflammation of spinal vertebrae. This means that if left untreated, ankylosing spondylitis leads to the fusion of vertebrae, making the spine hunched. But it’s usually very rare. If diagnosed early and taken care of properly, ankylosing spondylitis can be managed easily and sometimes can go unnoticed as well.

Ankylosing spondylitis starts from sacroiliac joints. These joints are present in the lower part of the spine, where the pelvis starts. Then this disease moves upwards and sometimes reaches the neck. It makes your spinal joints weak, teared, and this results in rubbing of the vertebrae. Ankylosing can cause severe pain and inflammation and one can’t move properly if the pain persists.

The diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis is not obvious. The symptoms aren’t very prominent indicators and the disease can’t be “seen” with X-rays and CT-scans as well. The doctor relies on the symptoms and gives you medicines and advises precautions accordingly.

Complications of ankylosing spondylitis

If ankylosing spondylitis keeps on worsening, it can cause severe complications. That said, you can manage your disease in the early stages to prevent complications.

Spine

Due to wear and tear of joints, the vertebrae keep on rubbing and at a point they can fracture. Although that’s rare, one should follow a proper care regime to prevent this from happening.

Eyes

About 40% of the patients suffering from ankylosing spondylitis can have this eye problem called uveitis. In this disease, the patient can’t see clearly and the eyes become sensitive to bright light.

Heart

It’s very rare that ankylosing spondylitis causes enlargement of the aorta that is the largest vessel in the body and this causes changes in the shape of the aortic valve. The blood flows back to the heart, leaving you short of breath and tired all the time.

Causes and risk factors of ankylosing spondylosis

The causes of ankylosing spondylitis are still unknown but some researches have shown that it can be due to genetics. Also the immune system might attack a particular bacteria, triggering the onset of ankylosing spondylitis. The risk factors include:

  • Gender. Men typically are more suspected to have ankylosing spondylitis than women.
  • Age. The disease typically onsets after the age of 45.

Ankylosing Spondylitis Symptoms Checklist

The symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis differ from person to person and also symptoms depend on the stage of the illness.

  • Pain and stiffness in the spine
  • Tiredness and fatigue
  • Swelling of joints
  • Curved spine
  • Unable to take deep breaths
  • Pain increases if you sit for too long

Ankylosing Spondylitis Treatment

Once ankylosing spondylitis is diagnosed, you have many treatment options, depending upon the severity of the condition. Unfortunately, there’s no permanent cure for ankylosing spondylitis yet. But you can certainly manage the pain and stop it from worsening by following proper treatment. Try home remedies first. You can try cold packs and hot packs alternatively to relieve pain, swelling, and help ease your movement. Apply a cold pack for around 20 minutes and after a few hours apply a hot pack for another 20 minutes. Along with this, you can practice mild exercises, after asking your physical therapist.

If your condition isn’t getting better with home remedies and physical therapy, you will be prescribed NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). The medicines depend on your pain and overall condition. If you have severe ankylosing spondylitis when the vertebrae get fractured or fused, you might have to go for surgery to fix the problem.
