Spondylitis is an inflammation of the vertebrae that causes stiffness and pain anywhere between the neck and lower back. It makes it difficult for the patient to sit, walk, move freely and even lie down. Caused primarily by bad postures and lack of vitamins and minerals, spondylitis can also result from a family history of arthritis. Yoga and exercise are effective for preliminary stages while the severe cases need proper anti inflammatory and pain reducing medications.
