Spondylitis Treatment

Spondylitis is a form of spondylopathy that involves one or more vertebral joints in which the vertebra starts swelling. The most common way of treating spondylitis is the Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen, aspirin etc., but people suffering from asthma or any other chronic stomach and kidney problems should avoid ibuprofen. Spondylitis causes a persistent pain and stiffness in the lower portion of the back, hips and remains for several months.
