When Back Pain Means Spondylitis

By diagnosing Ankylosing Spondylitis early, you can reduce the risk of disability and deformity. To download the brochure in PDF format, simply click on the image of the brochure to the left or you can click here.

Excerpt: Although there is no known cure as yet, spondylitis can be successfully managed to minimize spinal deformity and retard progressive loss of mobility of the spine and other affected joints.

The objectives of treatment - reducing pain and stiffness, maintaining erect posture and preserving mobility can only be achieved with the patient's active participation. Educating patients to their role is essential for success.
