Therefore, the daily care of patients with ankylosing spondylitis is particularly important. 01 Psychological care Ankylosing spondylitis occurs mostly in young and middle-aged men. It is a chronic progressive disease. After the advanced stage of skeletal rigidity, the condition is irreversible. The patient is often depressed, negative, and depressed, and it is easy to lose confidence in treatment and recovery. . Therefore, medical staff need to focus on different patients, pay attention to using different methods to talk, reduce patients’ worries about the disease, establish an optimistic attitude towards life, and increase confidence in recovery. Cooperate with medications and functional exercises, and actively adhere to treatment. 02 Drug care The clinical treatment of rigidity mainly includes non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, disease-improving drugs, adrenal cortex hormones, and biological agents. 03 Functional exercise 01 The specific operation of the chest expansion exercise: Practice deep breathing with chest and abdomen 5 to 6 times, 20 minutes each time, use more abdominal breathing. 02 Specific operations of cervical spine activities: slowly do left and right side flexion, flexion, extension, and rotation. 03 Specific operations of lumbar spine activities: stand bending, rotate left and right, back extension exercises, lying five-point support method and Feiyan exercise: (five-point support method in lying position) (Feiyan exercise) to maintain the physiological curvature of the spine and persist Lie on your stomach 3 times a day for 30 minutes each time.

Wind, cold and dampness invade by taking advantage of the opportunity to cause bone damage, tendons, and lumbar pain. The waist and back belong to the place where the sun passes through and belong to the surface. When the yang energy is damaged, it is the first to bear the brunt. Therefore, the method of invigorating the kidney is often used to treat this disease. Sanfu paste is very suitable for tonic patients with kidney deficiency and supervising cold. Here we introduce two “enhanced” sanfu pastes-fire dragon moxibustion and Dumai moxibustion. It is very suitable for fire dragon moxibustion for patients with kidney deficiency, superfluous cold and rigidity. Fire dragon moxibustion is a kind of traditional Chinese medicine moxibustion.

The Du Channel moxibustion, also known as the Long Snake Moxibustion, is a strip spreading moxibustion from the Dazhui point to the Yaoshu point of the Du Channel.
