If you are one of those people suffering from ankylosing spondylitis, then, you know how it emerges. It often starts with classical early-morning stiffness and pain in your lower back that gets better during the day with exercise. But, if left untreated, the inflammation can cause the vertebrate in your spine to fuse together. As a result of this fusion, the spine becomes less flexible and results in a hunched-forward posture. In addition, it may be difficult to breathe deeply if the ribs also get affected. Usually, it affects men more often than women. It is also known as a 'bamboo spine' because once permanently fused, the spinal joints look like the joints of a bamboo plant. Homeopathic medicine for ankylosing spondylitis offers effective treatment and gradual improvement of the condition.
What is Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)?
Ankylosing spondylitis, or Bechterew's disease, is an 'autoimmune disorder' - where the body's own immune cells damage the spine's joints. This causes swelling between the vertebrae & joints while involving the spine and pelvis.
Pain & stiffness are the first symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis - they are usually felt in the lower back and upper buttocks. In certain advanced cases of spondylitis, where the fusion of the spine has taken place, there also may be a complete loss of mobility. In addition, the whole area becomes brittle and vulnerable to fracture. Ankylosing spondylitis treatment in Homeopathy can provide significant relief from pain and stiffness.
Symptoms of Ankylosing Spondylitis
Some of the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis are:
- Back pain & stiffness lasting more than 3 months
- Pain in the buttocks
- Joint inflammation
- Inflammation at ligament or tendon attachment sites
- Bowel problems (inflammatory bowel disease)
- Pain behind the heel of the foot, in the Achilles tendon
- Severe sensitivity to light, blurred vision, or painful, red eyes
Ankylosing Spondylitis Homeopathy treatment offers symptomatic relief and helps improve the mobility of the affected joints.
Causes of Ankylosing Spondylitis
Understanding the causes of ankylosing spondylitis for effective homeopathic treatment is important. To date, the exact cause of ankylosing spondylitis is unknown. However, this disorder tends to run in families, so genetics probably plays a role. It can be tested by HLA-B27 marker blood test. According to the latest research, two other genes have been identified as having associations with Ankylosing spondylitis -ARTS1 and IL23R.
Researchers suspect that other than genes, some particular environmental factors, like bacterial infections, trigger ankylosing spondylitis. Having one of the following conditions may also increase the risk of the disease:
- Crohn's disease
- Ulcerative colitis
Ankylosing Treatment in Homeopathy can slow down the progression & reduce the need for painkillers.
Diagnosis of Ankylosing Spondylitis
Homeopathic medicines for ankylosing spondylitis can help treat the condition effectively once diagnosed. The routine investigations of ankylosing spondylitis are:
- X-ray of Lumbrosacral spine part
- MRI of spine
- Blood test to check for HLA-B27 presence
- A routine blood test like CBE and ESR
The following points offer a primary diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis:
- Persistent pain and stooped posture
- Decreased flexibility in the spine
- Decreased vital capacity of lungs due to pressure caused by the posture
