Medical Marijuana and Ankylosis

What Is Ankylosis?

Ankylosis is a condition that is associated with the stiffening of a joint due to the abnormal adhesion and rigidity nature of the bones of the joint. Ankylosis may result in injury or disease depending on the severity of a patient's condition. The rigidity of the bone may be complete or partial and may be due to inflammation of the tendinous and muscular structures that are outside the joint. This can also be responsible because of the tissues of the joint itself; however, it depends on the patient's current state. In extreme cases, patients may have a surgically induced fusion of the joint in order to provide support.

Medical Marijuana and Ankylosis

Medical marijuana is a great solution for patients who are suffering from symptoms of ankylosis and cannot find any sense of relief from prescription opiates. Medical marijuana serves as an exceptional medicine for many conditions, however in terms of how it relieves ankylosis, it serves as a muscle relaxer which can put the body at ease. Instead of having to complete tedious workouts of isometric exercise and taking opiates to relieve pain, medical marijuana can provide medicinal benefits that cannot be found in other treatments.

By also serving as an anti-inflammatory, any muscles or tendons or joints that are swollen and uncomfortable, can be treated and reduced significantly. Patients who are suffering from this condition should check to make sure it is within their states listed guidelines of approved conditions, and should then contact our service accordingly. Medical marijuana is a compassionate alternative treatment that can greatly benefit your life and your well-being.
