Back & shoulder pain

Mom was diagnosed for Spondylitis recently. She has been taking homeopathy medicines but it's not effective. Because few alopathy doctors suggested tat a Steroid injection can suppress the pain. We ain't interested in taking steroid injections. Kindly suggest safe way to deal with pain. Pain killers don seem to br effective too :( On seeing her MRI results doctors suggested that this condition can be cured by medication and Physiotherapy. Physiotherapy is not helping too.

Surgery is done in advanced cases. There are only treatment options in allopathy
