What is Ankylosing spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a type of arthritis that affects your spine. It can cause pain, stiffness, and inflammation from your neck to your lower back. Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) inflames the sacroiliac joints which is located between the base of the spine and pelvis area. This inflammation, called sacroiliitis, is one of the first signs of AS. When you have this condition, the vertebrae in your spine can fuse together. This makes your spine less flexible and might lead to a hunched-over posture and trouble breathing. Symptoms usually appear in people between the ages of 18 and 45. Ankylosing spondylitis has a genetic link and may run in families.

Symptoms of Ankylosing Spondylitis

  • Pain and stiffness: You may have constant pain and stiffness in the low back, buttocks, and hips that continues for more than 3 months. Ankylosing spondylitis often starts around the sacroiliac joints, where the sacrum (the lowest major part of the spine) joins the ilium bone of the pelvis in the lower back region. It might hurt more at night and get better when you wake up. You might also feel pain in other joints such as your knees, shoulders, and jaw.
  • Bony fusion: Ankylosing spondylitis can cause an overgrowth of the bones, which may lead to abnormal joining of bones, called “bony fusion.” Fusion affecting bones of the neck, back, or hips may affect your ability to perform everyday things. Fusion of the ribs to the spine or breastbone may limit your ability to expand your chest when taking a deep breath.
  • Pain in ligaments and tendons: Spondylitis also may affect some of the ligaments and tendons that attach to bones. Tendinitis (inflammation of the tendon) may cause pain and stiffness in the area behind or beneath the heel, such as the Achilles tendon.
  • Bent posture: If AS has gone undiagnosed and untreated, you might have a stooped posture from changes to your vertebrae.
  • Breathing problems: Changes in posture can lead to changes in your lungsthat make it hard to breathe.
  • Heart trouble: The inflammation can also affect your heart.
  • Eye problems: AS is linked to uveitis, a condition that causes inflammation in your eyes. Symptoms include pain, light sensitivity, and blurry vision.
  • Inflammatory bowel disease: The inflammation can also affect your digestive system. You might notice diarrhea, belly pain and cramps, bloody poop, less appetite, and weight loss without trying.
  • Psoriasis: About 10% of people with AS have this immune system disease that causes scaly, itchy red patches on their skin.
  • Fatigue: You could feel run down because of lack of sleep due to pain or as a part of the disease process itself.
  • Dactylitis: You may get swollen toes or fingers.
  • Fever: YDactylitis

Stem Cell Therapy for Ankylosing Spondylitis

Stem cells are undifferentiated or partially differentiated cells, which are characterized by their ability to self-renew and differentiate into more specialized cell types. With the help of its regenerative elements Stem Cells helps in regenerating the bone, cartilage make new blood vessels and protein synthesis leading to soft tissue repair and collagen synthesis. Our Treatment helps in revascularization process and stimulates the growth factors and cells to regenerate and repair the damaged tissue.

With our Team of experts and State of the Art Technology we have mastered the art to isolate maximum number of viable stem cells from autologous source (Bone Marrow and Adipose). Once derived these cells are thoroughly checked and administered to the patient under supervision of our expect Doctors.

These cells one infused reach to the damaged area and start repairing the damaged area enhancing the capability of the human body to repair in a better fashion and hence improving the quality of life.
