Ankylosing Spondylosis

It usually occurs in a young adult, 15-30 yr. more common in males, presenting with a gradual onset of pain and stiffness in lower back. Initially, stiffness is noticed after rest and improves with movement. The pain tends to worse at night or in early morning, awakening the patient from sleep. He gets better only after he walks about or do exercises. The sacroiliac joint is usually the first joint to get involved followed by the spine from the lumbar region upwards, resulting in bamboo spine restricting the forward bending of a person. The results of homoeopathy is good in treating ankylosing  spondylosis and the patients are getting relief in their pain and stiffness and can live happily.

In Allopathy, NSAIDs are often effective in relieving the complaints but do not alter the course of the disease. The slow acting anti-rheumatic drugs ( sulfasalazine, methotrexate or azithropine )may control peripheral joint synovitis but appear to have little or no impact in suppressing axial disease.

In MANGLIK HOMEO CLINIC, A patient was treated with the same disease and was continuing allopathic medication when she reached us, now she is not taking any allopathic medicine and now finally homoeopathic medication is also been stopped by us since last eight months and now she is living happily being free from stiffness and pain in her body with her family.

  1. It is the process of healing and repair following inflammation of the entheses that eventually can lead to scarring of the tissues, which subsequently can lead to extra bone formation. Thus, in someone with very severe disease, the process of inflammation can lead, over many years, to a bony fusion of the ligaments in the spine and sometimes in other joints as well, which is called ankylosis. This can cause an increased risk of spinal fracture because of the restricted range of movement and the fact that the bone formed during fusion is inherently weak. Not everyone will go on to this stage of spondylitis.

    1. yes its true, but if left untreated and as we don’t knew by our eye vision and by hearing the patient complaints alone, with what pace the disease is progressing without the patient being investigated radiologically so its get a bit risky for the patient because the bony change is a permanent change which the patient has to bear in his whole life so its better to get it treated earlier so that it might not progress rapidly.
