Ankylosing Spondylitis - Treatment
Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic disease primarily affecting the lower back with constant pain and stiffness leading to restriction of movements. The conventional treatment is helpful to give you control in pain but does not control the disease itself. With progress of time one may experience more pain and more stiffness. In some people, other joints and body parts like eyes, lung and heart may get affected. The medicines may also cause several side-effects. Starting with homeopathy simultaneously definitely helps in better control and long-term benefits. Deep acting constitutional homeopathic medicines are used in the treatment of ankylosing spondylitis, which has been proved to be beneficial in many patients with this condition and other diseases of the immune system
Classical homeopathic approach of individualisation is found to be the best approach in remedy selection for patients suffering from ankylosing spondylitis. This approach includes the study of individualising symptoms of the patient and how they are different from another patient suffering from same disease. The duration of treatment may be long, but positive changes are observed within four to six weeks of starting the homeopathic treatment. The outcome of the treatment depends upon the stage at which the patient has approached for homeopathic treatment. The extent of tissue damage will largely determine the outcome of the treatment with homeopathy. Homeopathic medicines are safe, natural medicines, without any side-effects and can be taken safely for long duration.
