Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis is an inflammatory disease. “Ankylosis” means fused bones or other hard tissue. “Spondylitis” means inflammation in your spinal bones or vertebrae. So over time, it can cause some of the small bones in your spine (vertebrae) to fuse. This fusing makes the spine less flexible and can result in a hunched-forward posture.

Symptoms :
  • Pain and Stiffness in your lower back and hips are the initial symptoms.
  • Pain that’s worse in the morning or after sitting for a long time.
  • A rigid spine that curves forward.
  • Tiredness.
  • Swelling in your joints.
  • Trouble taking deep breaths
Complications :

If you’ve had ankylosing spondylitis for a long time or if the bones in your back have fused together, you may be at risk of bones in your back fracturing. A fractured bone in your spine can cause nerve damage.

Some people with ankylosing spondylitis develop osteoporosis, a condition that causes bones to thin and be more likely to fracture.

Homoeopathic Approach :

Early diagnosis helps in treating Ankylosis spondylitis more effectively with homeopathy. Homeopathy helps to correct the immune system and thereby restricting the progression of the disease.

Also in severe cases, pain can be managed effectively with homeopathic medications.
