Ankylosing spondylitis is a long-term disease that causes inflammation of the joints between the spinal bones, and the joints between the spine and pelvis. It eventually causes the affected spinal bones to join together. The cause of ankylosing spondylitis is unknown, but genes seem to play a role.The disease most often begins between ages 20 and 40, but may begin before age 10. It affects more males than females.
Role of Homeopathy
The classical constitutional homeopathy treatment works at the genetic level and helps to give a long standing cure to the patient. But the deformities cannot alter to normal condition.
