Spondylitis is when you experience chronic back pain, especially in your upper back. What is annoying about this problem is that it not only causes you pain after you have exerted yourself, but it also leads to more pain when you have done no physical exertion at all. In addition, it stiffens your back as well as your neck. However, here are a few ways with which you can treat your spondylitis pain:
There are many treatments like transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation and other kinds of medications that can help you with spondylitis. Even surgeries are performed in the worst case scenarios. However, the above-mentioned are some of the tried, tested and most effective methods to get rid of spondylitis pain.
Ankylosis spondylitis homeopathic treatment
Living with spondylosis can be tremendously painful. Our spine is made up of a number of bones known as vertebrae. Between two consecutive vertebrae, there is a cushion like substance called intervertebral disc. Spondylosis is a common degenerative condition of the intervertebral disc due to subsequent biochemical changes in the bones and soft tissues. This affects the normal spinal structure and function of the cervical (neck), thoracic (chest area), and lumbar (low back) spine.
We're going to refer to ankylosing spondylitis as word by word just once, you'll see that ankylosing means fusion.
So it describes the spine being fused together. Spondy, this first part of the word, refers to the spine. And then -itis anywhere is inflammation. So this is an inflammation of the spine and at the sacroiliac joint, actually,
And it leads to the fusion of the area.
There are some buzzwords surrounding it. So one of them would be that it is the poster child for a group of different diseases we can read in complication of ankylosis spondolysis HLA b27 synonym term. That are referred to collectively as the seronegative spondyloarthropathies.
Spondylo-, so again, that's the spine, and then arthro, which refers to joints in general,
And then pathologies or illnesses.
So what this means is that they are rheumatoid factor negative.
They do not have rheumatoid factor but immunological reaction due to hla b27.
As biochemical changes transpire, collagen - a crucial structural elements of the intervertebral disc is affected by the loss of water content which causes the discs to weaken and shrink in height escalating the risk for disc bulging and herniation. The cartilage covering joint surface erodes causing the spine's ligaments to thicken and lose strength. In an effort to repair itself, the body forms bone spurs (osteophytes) and the joints enlarge causing osteoarthritis or degenerative joint disease.
'if you wake up in the morning with a stiff back and feeling tired - indeed after moving about for some time, his back hurt less, just as his physician had said'
This is the typical picture of an ankylosing spondylitis patient - whose spine is gradually getting'rigid.
Hla b27 what does it means in ankylosis spondolysis-
It's hlab27. Again, it's part of the immune system. It's an antigen on the surface of the cell that can be recognized by t-cells, which can recruit things to attack it. So this is the autoimmune component of the disease. This hla-b27 association actually exists for the seronegative spondyloarthropathies in general, but here, in particular, for as you should remember that connection.
An abnormal result may be caused by:
And then, just a little background information on the group of people that tend to get this. Remember, nothing is absolute, but if we're looking for patterns, it's going to be males and relatively young ones, actually, really young ones, from 15 to 45 is going to be the mean or the biggest group of people who get as or that's when it's diagnosed the most.
Complications of ankylosing spondylitis-
Causes of ankylosing spondylitis -
Interesting thing about ankylosing spondylitis is that the exact cause of this condition has not been clearly understood till date though it has been the subject of numerous studies!
Ankylosing spondylitis is considered to be a genetic disorder in which the HLA-b27 gene, in particular, has an important role to play.
The risk factors that predispose a person to ankylosing spondylitis include:
Testing positive for the HLA-b27 marker:- people with this particular gene have a significantly higher risk of developing ankylosing spondylitis. However, it must be noted that not every person who has the HLA-b27 gene develops this disorder. Thus there are some additional factors, probably environmental, that are involved in the development of this condition.
A family history of ankylosis- patients with a family history of ankylosing spondylitis stand a greater chance to develop it as compared to those with no family history.
In addition, gender affinity has been strongly noticed in this condition. Males are almost 2 to 3 times more prone to develop this condition as compared to females. Ankylosis spondolysis is more common in men but occurs in women as well.
As commonly occurs in younger people, between the ages of 17-45. So restrict the life style of these people. However, it can affect children and those who are much older.
Frequent gastrointestinal infections:- the initial inflammation that activates the immune system is thought to be triggered by a bacterial or microbial infection. At a later stage, the immune system is unable to turn off this response which continues to attack the body’s own tissues now, in this case, the joints leading to arthritis. This explains the auto-immune nature of the disease.
Symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis-
Diagnosis of ankylosis spondolysis-
Homeopathic treatment can contribute to an effective and safe cure in the preliminary stage of spondylosis. In chronic cases of spondylosis, homeopathy can reduce overcrowding of the spine, compression of the nerves and also conclude the progressive degenerative changes. In very advanced cases of structural damage like a badly deformed spine, homeopathic remedies along with a correct posture can facilitate in living better without any complaints or pain. We can aim for near normal in all other cases. The outcome of homeopathy in managing spondylosis will be remarkable compared to another system of medicines or surgical interventions.
Homeopathy can provide good relief to the patients and control the progress of ankylosing spondylitis. We strive to give the patients of ankylosing spondylitis a better quality of life, free from the pain of arthritis - one that can be lived to the fullest.
Homeopathic treatment is natural, safe, gentle and without side-effects. Another impressive thing about homeopathy is that people on multiple medications can safely take homeopathic medicines. Homeopathic drugs are non-habit forming and have no addictive characteristics. Homeopathy has an exceptional proven safety record with the FDA with 200 years of clinical effectiveness.
Since homeopathy treats in totality, it leads to a permanent long-lasting cure, rather than a temporary suppression of symptoms, and you will be able to enjoy all kinds of food to the fullest. So, food lovers, you won't have to think anymore before eating.
Self-care measure -
Hence, every individual suffering from spondylosis must consider homeopathy to provide relief and/or lifetime cure. Homeopathic treatment can change a person’s life from one of distress to one of health.
We believe in a strong patient-doctor relationship and our motto is'healthy people wealthy nation'
