AS is a type of arthritis in which there is long term inflammation of joints of the spine. Typically joints where spine joins the pelvis are also affected. It’s a long-term (chronic) condition in which spine and other areas of body become inflamed. Individuals often experience pain and stiffness that awakens them in early morning hours. As disease progresses, loss of spinal mobility and chest expansion, with a limitation of anterior flexion, lateral flexion, and extension of lumbar spine seen. It can also cause vertebrae and lumbosacral joint to ossify, resulting fusion of spine. This place, spine in a vulnerable state because it becomes one bone, which causes it to lose its range of motion as well as putting it at risk of spinal fractures.

Symptoms of AS can vary but usually involve:

•back pain and stiffness that improves with exercise and isn’t relieved by rest

•fatigue (extreme tiredness)

•pain and stiffness are worse in morning and at night; may wake up regularly during night because of pain

•pain and swelling in other parts of body, such as hips, knees and ribs

•pain in area around buttocks or back of thigh from sacroiliac joint

•pain on moving the affected joint

•stiffness of affected joints generally worsens over time

•swelling and warmth in affected area

•systemic features are common, with weight loss, fever, or fatigue often present

•tenderness when affected joint is examined

•where ribs join to breast bone; may experience chest pain and find it difficult to expand chest when breathing deeply.

Confirming ankylosing spondylitis: A diagnosis of AS can usually be confirmed if you have at least one of the following:

•at least three months of lower back pain that gets better with exercise and doesn’t improve with rest

•limited movement in lumbar spine (lower back)

•limited chest expansion compared to what is expected for your age and sex

If you have all three of these features but do not have sacroiliitis or if you only have sacroiliitis you will be diagnosed with “probable ankylosing spondylitis”.

Complications: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a complex condition that can affect many parts of body. It can cause complications in day-to-day life and lead to additional health conditions including back pain and stiffness, arthritis, enthesis, fatigue.

Concept TriOrigin pays attention to organs interrelationship between affected part and meridian. While western medicine looks at visible ankylosingpathological phenomena, and TriOrigin looks at invisible fundamental life energies running all over body along meridians, situation of so-called Ki. In short, western medicine grasps human body as physical and employs analytical, artificial cure method, but TriOrigin views human body as small cosmos energy system and employs general natural cure method. Blocked qi is thought to cause disease. Unblocking qi allows body to heal itself. Scientific evidence: one theory suggests needling encourages release of endorphins natural painkiller produced by brain and sets off an inflammatory response that allows body to heal itself. To aide in syndrome, one may put color dots and affix white/black pepper seeds on the prescribed color dots. ‘Dr Dinesh kapur’
