Ankylosing spondylitis – our treatment
Ankylosing spondylitis is a rheumatic disease that cannot be cured with current therapies, but the course of the disease can be positively influenced by timely and competent rheumatic therapy. The aim of any therapy is to maintain the mobility of your spine for as long and as far as possible, to relieve you of your inflammation-related pain and to prevent severe progressions with malpositions (kyphosis), stiffening or even fractures. Conservative treatment approaches, such as special exercises from physiotherapy and, in particular, anti-inflammatory drugs for your pain are therefore at the forefront of ankylosing spondylitis therapy. However, in the case of particularly severe courses of the disease with corresponding malpositioning, surgery can also be a sensible therapy to straighten your spine and thus restore your quality of life. Our highly qualified specialists at Schoen Clinic Neustadt have extensive clinical and scientific experience in the surgical treatment of ankylosing spondylitis.
