Treatments of spondylitis
Spondylitis is a type of arthritis that primarily affects the spine. It causes inflammation of the vertebrae, which can lead to severe pain and discomfort. In advanced cases, it can lead to erosion of the joint between the spine and the hip or the development of new bone followed by fused vertebrae.
The disease is most common among young people (ages 17 to 35), tends to be hereditary, and affects men two to three times more than women.
Treatment for spondylitis is focused on reducing pain and stiffness and preventing deformities. Treatments may include:
- Pain relief back support belts
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to reduce pain and swelling.
- Short-term use of corticosteroids to relieve pain and swelling.
- Tumor-necrosis-factor (TNF) blockers to reduce pain, stiffness, and swelling.
- Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) to decrease inflammation and slow the progress of spondylitis.
- Short-term use of pain relievers and muscle relaxants to relieve severe pain and reduce muscle spasms.
- Surgery – to replace a joint, to place rods in the spine, or to remove parts of thickened and hardened bone.
- Physical therapy and exercise to strengthen back muscles, maintain flexibility, and promote an ideal posture.
