Ankylosing Spondylitis & Psoriatic Clinic

jaslok hospital

The Ankylosing Spondylitis & Psoriatic Clinic at Jaslok Hospital is dedicated to providing comprehensive care and support for patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA). AS and PsA are chronic inflammatory conditions that affect the joints, tendons, ligaments, and spine, causing pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.

The clinic is staffed by a team of expert rheumatologists, dermatologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists, and occupational therapists who work collaboratively to provide personalised care to each patient, taking into account their specific needs and concerns.

One of the key components of the Ankylosing Spondylitis & Psoriatic Clinic is the diagnostic process. When a patient comes to the clinic, the healthcare professionals will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine the nature and extent of their condition. This may involve taking a medical history, conducting physical tests, and using imaging techniques such as X-rays, MRI, or CT scans.

Once the diagnosis is made, the healthcare professionals will develop a treatment plan that is tailored to the patient's specific needs. The goal of treatment is to reduce pain and inflammation, prevent joint damage, and improve overall function and quality of life.

Treatment for ankylosing spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis may involve a combination of medications, physical therapy, and lifestyle modifications. Physical therapy is an important component of treatment and may involve exercises designed to improve flexibility, strength, and range of motion. Lifestyle modifications, such as diet and exercise can also help manage symptoms and improve overall health.

Another important feature of the Ankylosing Spondylitis & Psoriatic Clinic is patient education. Patients are provided with information about their condition, treatment options, and strategies for managing symptoms. This education can help patients feel empowered and better equipped to manage their condition on their own.

In addition to treating patients with ankylosing spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis, the clinic also focuses on research and education. Healthcare professionals are actively involved in research to improve understanding of these conditions and develop new treatments. They also provide education to other healthcare professionals and the public about ankylosing spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis.
