The treatment of ankylosing spondylitis Ankylosing spondylitis, ankylosing spondylitis experts say that ankylosing spondylitis is a common rheumatic immune disease with diverse clinical manifestations. The main lesions are the spine and limbs and joints. As the course of the disease increases, the condition worsens. The sacroiliac joints, lumbar spine, thoracic spine, and cervical spine can be affected in patients with ankylosis. X-rays show that the spine forms bamboo-shaped bony rigidity, and some have different degrees of kyphosis. In severe cases, it is not only inconvenient to move. Much like a shrimp man, therefore, if tonic is not treated, as the condition gets worse, the patient will become a “shrimp man”. Ankylosing spondylitis causes great harm to the “shrimp man” 01 Ankylosing spondylitis has hip joint involvement in more than 60% of cases. It can not only narrow the hip joint space, but also cause bone destruction and cause hip joint pain, so the hip joint is afraid to do it Flexion and extension activities, for a long time, will cause hip joint bony rigidity, and loss of mobility, resulting in lifelong disability. Disabled patients due to hip joint damage account for about 15%-20% of patients with ankylosing spondylitis. Only about 50% of patients with ankylosing spondylitis can maintain their work and life ability, but they are accompanied by various degrees of discomfort, pain and inconvenience throughout their lives. 02 If ankylosing spondylitis is not treated in time, the effect may not be significant and the damage is serious. Severe kyphotic deformation can make patients with ankylosing spondylitis pose an ugly posture, unable to look straight ahead, which not only brings psychological suffering to the patient, but can also cause lifelong disability. Many hunchback patients have to give up their favorite jobs, and their family life will be affected to varying degrees. 03 Humpback deformity is often combined with thoracic deformity, restricted diaphragm activity, internal organ compression, chest and abdomen contact, etc., which greatly affect the breathing, circulation and digestive functions, easily induce respiratory and digestive diseases, and once acute abdomen occurs, it will give patients The body caused great harm. 04 The center of gravity of patients with kyphosis is located in front of the lower limbs, so the center of gravity is unstable, and it is easy to fall and cause various injuries. Especially in patients with ankylosing spondylitis, the spine has been fused into a long bone, which is prone to traumatic spine fractures. In severe cases, it can be combined with paraplegia . What is more serious is spinal stenosis caused by kyphosis, and late-onset paraplegia that is difficult to treat often occurs. Therefore, it is very important to actively treat kyphosis.
