Whenever I sleep then when I wake up in the morning then I feel back bain sometimes whole back and many times down below. I had pain killer it helped me for few days but again problem started.
In the early stages of the disease a flattening of the lumbar curve may occur. Then, with increasing pain and a flexed posture, the thoracic curve can become more accentuated. If unchecked, this can be followed by a loss of cervical curve and a protracted cervical spine develops as an attempt to compensate for the forward flexion. As the hips become more flexed, hip flexion contractures can occur and the knees flex to improve balance and vision. Poor posture results in muscle fatigue, weakness, disability and a poor body image.Good management of the disease should prevent poor posture from occurring,although any fusion may be delayed and not halted. Note especially the knee flexion and hip flexion deformities. The reason for these deformities is that,if the spine is constantly flexed, the patient would fall over forwards. By flexing the knees and hips, the person shifts the line of gravity back within the base to become more stable.
AIMS OF PHYSIOTHERAPY MANAGEMENT:
The overall aims are to minimize deformity and disability and to improve well being, thereby maintaining normal function and improving the person’s quality of life.
Specifically these aims can be achieved by:
- Advising on postural awareness and ergonomics
- Reducing pain
- Maintaining and improving posture and function by a) increasing mobility of spinal, costo vertebral and peripheral joints, b) strengthening the antigravity muscles, and c) stretching specific muscle groups
- Improving and maintaining cardiovascular fitness
- Monitoring posture, mobility and function through regular assessment
- Devising and monitoring a home program of specific exercises that are suitable and consistent with long-term compliance
- Imparting knowledge about the disease and its management Improving the person’s psychological state, coping strategies and exercise compliance.
PAIN IN ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS
Pain may vary from low grade discomfort to intense pain.
Typically, pain is aggravated and is often reduced by exercise. The perception of pain can be influenced by several factors, including fatigue.
Physiotherapy modalities such as ultrasound, dry needling, and transcutanous nerve stimulation, mega pulse and gentle spinal mobilization can be effective, especially for localized pain.
If the person has not exercised recently, exercises will need to be commenced gradually and the person warned that initially they may provoke pain.
Wearing supportive shock-absorbing shoes can decrease the jarring effect of walking on hard surfaces and reduce the likelihood of aggravating the pain. Hot packs can reduce pain.

Adhesive capsulitis is the medical term for a frozen shoulder, which can be caused due to a variety of reasons. Scar tissues can grow in the shoulder joint when the said joint becomes thicker. This development keeps the shoulder from rotating in a normal manner, which can lead to a frozen shoulder. The most common symptoms of this condition include severe pain and stiffness as well as inflammation. Here are the causes and ways to treat this condition.
Causes: A frozen shoulder can be caused due to a sports injury as well as an accident. Also, a hormonal imbalance can cause this condition. A weak immune system may cause inflammation in various joints of the body, which makes motion difficult. Also, diabetes can give rise to a frozen shoulder as a side effect. If you have a sedentary lifestyle and do not exercise often enough, or have just been through surgery which has led to a prolonged period of inactivity, then you can be prone to this condition. Surgery will also leave your tissue and adhesions sensitive to inflammation. Scar tissue may end up forming in very extreme cases, over a period of at least nine months. This can limit your motion.
Risk Factors: Besides diabetes, hormonal changes and inactivity, people who have been through a stroke or surgery are most susceptible to this condition. Also, patients who are suffering from thyroid disorders can end up developing a frozen shoulder too.
Physical Therapy: One of the most recommended ways to deal with this condition is with physical therapy. This kind of therapy will help you in stretching your shoulder so that you get back some motion over a period of time. This process can take anywhere between a few weeks to a few months, depending on the severity of your condition. You must ask a doctor about other treatment options if this kind of therapy does not show results even after six months of intense and regular practice. Physical therapy can also be practiced at home, once you have learnt the technique from a physiotherapist.
Medication: One of the other ways to deal with a frozen shoulder is with the help of medication. Anti-inflammatory and pain relieving medicines can soothe the discomfort. These include aspirin, ibuprofen, as well as naproxen sodium. Also, if you are undergoing a lot of pain, the doctor can administer a steroid injection in the shoulder joint.
Surgery: If medication and physical therapy do not help in treating the condition effectively, then one can go in for an arthroscopic surgery to remove the scar tissue with a small incision and other kinds of surgery for breaking the adhesions as well.
