What is Ankylosing Spondylitis?
Ankylosing is a condition that directly affects the spine. As is the case with any arthritis, the condition is caused by the inflammation of the joints. This may cause the bone padding to become thinner or in some cases dissolve completely. In such cases the joints of the spine may fuse together forming a “new bone”. When this occurs, mobility will be greatly reduced. You will also experience a great deal of pain. Ankylosing Spondylitis is different from a sprain or a strain of the back in that it involves the actual bones in the spine.
What are the Symptoms of Ankylosing Spondylitis?
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you are strongly advised to seek the professional diagnosis of a medical staff, practitioner, or doctor. Where these symptoms are common in Ankylosing Spondylitis, it is not definitive that you have spinal arthritis.
- Stiffness of the back – Continuous stiffness in the lower back and buttocks may be a sign of Ankylosing Spondylitis. Because the arthritis generally starts in the lower back, those which are experiencing prolonged stiffness in this area should be diagnosed.
- Pain in the back – If you suffer from back pain which isn’t caused by lifting or straining (a temporary condition in most cases) but pain that lingers you may have Ankylosing Spondylitis.

What Should I Do After Suffering Ankylosing Spondylitis?

Do I Need to See a Professional Chiropractor for My Ankylosing Spondylitis Diagnosis?
Claims for Ankylosing Spondylitis are generally disability oriented. Depending upon the gravity of your condition, you may be entitled to complete or partial disability. In most cases where the arthritis is not permanent or in cases where the condition is treatable, a person may file for temporary disability compensation while undergoing treatment.
Those which have sought the professional diagnosis of a licensed chiropractor, medical facility, doctor or practitioner who has shown symptoms which could have been commonly recognised by another professional in the same field as being that of Ankylosing Spondylitis and have been misdiagnosed and treated, may have grounds for a malpractice or negligence claim. Cases where surgery has been conducted on the spine which has resulted in the fusion of the vertebrae in the area which had the surgery have grounds for a claim.
How Common are Ankylosing Spondylitis Compensation Claims?
Individuals who are seeking to file a claim against a business should be aware that such claims are rare. In these cases the victim must show that the company failed to provide adequate measures of safety which would have prevented the injury. Such examples of a claim would be with a business whose employees are constantly required to lift products or goods. If the company failed to convey the possible health risks involved from prolonged and repetitive strains to the back and if the company failed to implement safety measures to reduce such a strain on the back, you may have grounds for a claim.
