Most often, the disease occurs in people with a genetic predisposition to it. It also develops in the presence of viral infections, exposure to cold, colds, different spinal injuries and latent infections.
Bekhterev’s disease has a lot of different symptoms. The initial symptoms mostly resemble the osteochondrosis symptoms - mild back pain intensified after the rest, as well as due to weather changes. This pain decreases during exercises and thermotherapy. Often at this stage the physicians have no doubt as to the diagnosed osteochondrosis and pain can be easily removed through administration of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. However, the pain will increase gradually. The pain decreases during the day but increases after the midnight. The peak pain accounts for the period from 3 up to 5 o’clock in the morning.
The disease greatly affects a person’s appearance. In the initial stages the lack of the normal lumbar curvature of the spine can be seen, due to which the lower back looks straight and flat. Under disease progression the thoracic spine freezes up and legs become permanently bent at the knees when walking.
Bekhterev’s disease should be managed immediately after it has been defined.
