Ankylosing spondylitis or ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the joints and spine. Included in the group of seronegative poliatritov. This disease is more common in men than in women (ratio 5:1), and in women, the disease occurs more easily.

   At this disease there is an inflammation of sinews, joints and sheaves, changes in bone fabric. The long inflammation of joints leads to ankylosis and as a result, to restriction of mobility of joints, and also to an union and a kaltsifikation of sheaves.

   The illness was described for the first time by V. M. Bekhterev at the end of the XIX century. Now the cause of illness isn't known, but is established that the big role in development of a disease is played by hereditary predisposition. It is supposed that this disease develops because of the latent infections, but arises only at those who has hereditary predisposition and specific genetic features. Bekhterev's illness has chronic character and begins aged from 15 till 30 years, after 40 years development of an illness is very improbable.

Diagnostics of an illness of Bekhterev in Israel

   As a rule, the illness begins with emergence of pains and constraint in lumbar department of a backbone that is often perceived as a sciatica or radiculitis. At early stages to distinguish an illness very difficult, very skilled experts can distinguish early signs only.

   Therefore if with a waist there were morning pains and constraint it is necessary to exclude Bekhterev's illness surely. For this purpose carry out the clinical and biochemical analysis of blood, KT of a backbone, a thorax, backbone MRT. If after these researches the diagnosis still raises doubts, make the analysis on existence of an anti-gene of HLA-B2 which presence is characteristic at Bekhterev's illness.

  First, symptoms of an illness of Bekhterev remind osteochondrosis symptoms as the patient complains of quite moderate pains in a waist which easily act by means of nonsteroid anti-inflammatory preparations. Therefore often make the diagnosis: osteochondrosis.

  The skilled doctor in such situation will pay attention to "inflammatory" character of pains in joints and a back: pain amplifies between 3 and 5 o'clock in the morning and ceases in the afternoon. Besides, the age of the patient has to guard, after all osteochondrosis elderly people usually have, and Bekhterev's illness arises at young age. At the beginning of development of a disease it is possible to find reddening or an inflammation of eyes, the weight reduction, the increased temperature in a half of the diseased.

  The main symptom of a disease is limited mobility of a thorax at breath and increasing rigidity of a backbone.

  Appearance of the patient also has characteristic signs: in the beginning the normal bend of a backbone disappears, the waist becomes direct and flat, then in later stage the chest department of a backbone as though "stiffens" having strongly stooped thus. Feet of the patient are always slightly bent by Bekhterev when walking.

   In such stage the illness can't already be confused with something another, but also to treat an illness at such stage already it is almost useless as by this time in an organism there are too big changes.

  Bekhterev's illness needs to be begun for the present there was no "hardening" of the inflamed joints and a backbone, and for this purpose it is necessary to diagnose a disease correctly in time.

  Treatment of an illness of Bekhterev in Israel is complex, stage-by-stage and long. To reduction of a pain syndrome apply nonsteroid anti-inflammatory preparations. If the illness proceeds hard and develops very quickly, immunodepressants and hormones of bark of adrenal glands are appointed. Surely appoint physiotherapy exercises, manual and physical therapy. Swimming, exercises for strengthening of muscles of a back is recommended. At heavy forms treatment of this disease in Israel carry out by means of a backbone operation and an endoprotezirovaniye of joints.
