Ankylosing spondylitis (pronounced ank-kih-low-sing spon-dill-eye-tiss), or as, is a form of arthritis that primarily affects the spine, although other joints can become involved. It causes inflammation of the spinal joints (vertebrae) that can lead to severe, chronic pain and discomfort. Symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis •pain and stiffness. You may have constant pain and stiffness in the low back, buttocks, and hips that continues for more than 3 months. Ankylosing spondylitis often starts around the sacroiliac joints, where the sacrum (the lowest major part of the spine) joins the ilium bone of the pelvis in the lower back region. It might hurt more at night and get better when you wake up. You might also feel pain in other joints such as your knees, shoulders, and jaw. •bony fusion. Ankylosing spondylitis can cause an overgrowth of the bones, which may lead to abnormal joining of bones, called "bony fusion. Fusion affecting bones of the neck, back, or hips may affect your ability to perform everyday things. Fusion of the ribs to the spine or breastbone may limit your ability to expand your chest when taking a deep breath. •pain in ligaments and tendons. Spondylitis also may affect some of the ligaments and tendons that attach to bones. Tendinitis (inflammation of the tendon) may cause pain and stiffness in the area behind or beneath the heel, such as the achilles tendon. •bent posture. If as has gone undiagnosed and untreated, you might have a stooped posture from changes to your vertebrae. •breathing problems. Changes in posture can lead to changes in your lungsthat make it hard to breathe. •heart trouble. The inflammation can also affect your heart. •eye problems. As is linked to uveitis, a condition that causes inflammation in your eyes. Symptoms include pain, light sensitivity, and blurry vision. •inflammatory bowel disease. The inflammation can also affect your digestive system. You might notice diarrhea, belly pain and cramps, bloody poop, less appetite, and weight loss without trying. •psoriasis. About 10% of people with as have this immune system disease that causes scaly, itchy red patches on their skin. •fatigue. You could feel run down because of lack of sleep due to pain or as a part of the disease process itself. •dactylitis. You may get swollen toes or fingers. •fever. You might have a mild fever. Over many years, as can cause new bone to grow on your spine, fusing the vertebrae and making it harder to move. This can cause severe stiffness. About half the people who have as get osteoporosis, or brittle bones. Exercises for the back, neck and.

Ankylosing spondylitis is a cause of back pain in adolescents and young adults. Ankylosing spondylitis is a form of chronic inflammation of the spine and the sacroiliac joints chronic inflammation in these areas causes pain and stiffness in and around the spine, including the neck, middle back, lower back, and buttocks. Over time, chronic inflammation of the spine (spondylitis) can lead to a complete cementing together (fusion) of the vertebrae, a process referred to as ankylosis. Ankylosis causes loss of mobility of the spine. Pt treatment deep breathing for lung expansion and stretching exercises to improve spine and joint mobility. Are also advised to sleep on a firm mattress and avoid the use of a pillow in order to prevent spine curvature. Aerobic exercise is generally encouraged as it promotes full expansion of the breathing muscles and opens the airways of the lungs.

I have spondyloarthropathy. For long term it is ankylosing spondylitis. I have back pain for last 9 years. One week before I travelled in omni 4 km the vehicle went fast over 2-3 speed bump.

Aerobic exercise is generally encouraged as it promotes full expansion of the breathing muscles and opens the airways of the lungs. Home remidie physical therapy for ankylosing spondylitis includes instructions and exercises to maintain proper posture. This includes deep breathing for lung expansion and stretching exercises to improve spine and joint mobility. Since ankylosis of the spine tends to cause forward curvature (kyphosis), patients are instructed to maintain erect posture as much as possible and to perform back-extension exercises. Patients are also advised to sleep on a firm mattress and avoid the use of a pillow in order to prevent spine curvature. Ankylosing spondylitis can involve the areas where the ribs attach to the upper spine as well as the vertebral joints, thus limiting breathing capacity. Patients are instructed to maximally expand their chest frequently throughout each day to minimize this limitation. Physical therapists customize exercise programs for each individual. Swimming often can be a very beneficial form of exercise, as it avoids jarring impact of the spine. Ankylosing spondylitis need not limit an individual's involvement in athletics. People can participate in carefully chosen aerobic sports when their disease is inactive. Aerobic exercise is generally encouraged as it promotes full expansion of the breathing muscles and opens the airways of the lungs. Cigarette smoking is strongly discouraged in people with ankylosing spondylitis, as it can accelerate lung scarring and seriously aggravate breathing difficulties. Occasionally, those with severe lung disease related to ankylosing spondylitis may require oxygen supplementation and medications to improve breathing. People with ankylosing spondylitis may need to modify their activities of daily living and adjust features of the workplace. For example, workers can adjust chairs and desks for proper postures. Drivers can use wide rearview mirrors and prism glasses to compensate for the limited motion in the spine. You should check with your doctor before using compression socks for your swelling. These special socks should be properly fitted for you and your needs. Also, be sure to wear them during the day and remove them before you go to bed. Leg elevation if you stand a lot during the day, try propping your feet up or soaking them in water when you get home to help prevent swelling. Muscle relaxant: reduces muscle tension and helps relieve muscle pain and discomfort. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (also known as tens) is something which helps ease muscle pain and spasms. You can strengthen the muscles by doing tonification ie. Improving the tone of the muscles by adding either weight cuffs / sand bags which will help you to improve the strength of the muscle.

I had vitamin d3 deficiency which somehow did not get attention from my side for almost 2 years & I have landed up in few issues with my spine leading to body pain symptoms such as knees, legs, back fingers, shoulder, etc. Severity is more when I get up in the morning. I have directed to arthritis specialist however all arthritis tests were negative & problem did not settle even after Dr. treated me for about 4 months with lubrijointod 1 tablet daily and etova400 (painkiller). Subsequently, I was directed to pain management specialist, who advised to get x-ray & mri done for the spine. And multiple problems were observed related to the spine. 1. X-ray of the thoracolumbar spine: few marginal & few bridging osteophytes appears mildly reduced 2. X-ray of the pelvis with both hips: normal 3. Mri cervical spine: a. Partial fusion of vertebral bodies & right sided facet joints of c4 & c5 verbetre with rudimentary intervening intervertebral disc, suggestive of partial c4/c5 block vertebra b. The mild diffuse posterior bulge of desiccated c3-c4 intervertebral disc c. Mild left posterolateral bulge of dessicated c4-c5 intervertebral disc d. Mild hypertrophy at c5/c6 level 4. Mri -lumbar spine with sacroiliac joints screening: a. Mild left forminal bulge of the partially dessicated l3-l4 intervertebral disc, causing narrowing of the left neural foramen & indenting the left exiting l3 nerve root. B. Same as above for l4-l5. Exiting l4 nerve root c. The mild diffuse posterior bulge of the partially dessicated l5-s1 intervertebral disc, indenting the thecal sac. D. Mild facial arthropathy at l5-s1 intervertebral disc level request your guidance to know what is the exact problem? Is it repairable or I have to carry this as is? I still continue to have the pain. Any treatment would help me? (medicine-allopathy/ayurvedic/homeopathy or message.) I have taken physiotherapy for about 1 month & they had given me @30+ exercises to do on daily basis.

You are having multiple small problems in the spine may be secondary to the degenerative changes in the spine. Only thing is you are only 57 years old and the age-related changes seem to be a little premature. What about your blood work? Having these changes in the spine you will have to concentrate on your blood parameters also.
