Infusion Therapy for Ankylosing Spondylitis
Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory disease primarily affecting the spine and peripheral joints, leading to pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. This condition often emerges in early adulthood and can significantly impact your quality of life. Traditional treatment options include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and physical therapy, but for those with active ankylosing spondylitis that does not respond adequately to these therapies, infusion treatment becomes a viable option.
We understand the challenges that individuals with ankylosing spondylitis face on a daily basis — that’s why we are here to offer a comprehensive and patient-focused approach to managing this chronic inflammatory condition through infusion therapy. Our mission is to provide you with the best possible care in a comfortable and supportive environment. With over 15 years of experience, we have been at the forefront of caring for patients with complex autoimmune and inflammatory conditions, including AS.
How Does Ankylosing Spondylitis Infusion Treatment Work?
Infusion therapy for ankylosing spondylitis involves delivering targeted medications directly into the bloodstream to address the inflammation and pain associated with the disease. Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors are a class of biologic medications commonly used in AS treatment. These drugs suppress the immune system’s overactivity, reducing inflammation and slowing down disease progression. Clinical trials have demonstrated their efficacy in managing symptoms and improving patients’ clinical response.
