Bekhterev’s disease – ankylosing spondylitis – is a specific inflammatory disease of the spinal column associated with an immune system disorder, characterised by long-term duration and gradual progression.
Bekhterev’s disease results in significant mobility limitation and is accompanied by severe pain.
Bekhterev’s disease mainly affects the SI joint and intervertebral joints, resulting in gradual stiffening up to ankylosis of the spine. Osseous bridging of the intervertebral space (syndesmophytes) develops.
The most important treatment measures are modification of the environment and lifestyle, rehabilitation, spa treatment and administration of anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs.
Read the results of the following clinical studies that demonstrate the success rate of low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy in treatment of this condition.
