A new catergory

The following has just been inserted into the Spine-Health lineup
Under Conditions:


This is for discussions relating to Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)

This is a type of arthritis that primarily affects the spine. The disease is characterized by inflammation and resulting stiffness and pain in the joints along the spine. The knee and shoulder joints may also be affected.

With ankylosing spondylitis (pronounced ankle-low-zing spond-ill-eye-tis), the inflammation in the joints of the spine will typically result in parts of the vertebrae and joints in the spine fusing together. As parts of the vertebrae grow (or "fuse") together, the spine becomes more rigid and inflexible.
