Spinal Spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that primarily causes pain and inflammation of the joints between the vertebrae of the spine. Spondylitis may also cause inflammation and pain in other parts of the body.
SIGN OF POTENTIAL CONCERN
Early signs and symptoms of spondylitis may include:
Chronic pain in the neck or lower back and hips, especially in the morning and after periods of inactivity
Stiffness in the lower back or hip area
As the condition progresses, one may experience inflammation and pain in other parts of the body:
The area where tendons and ligaments attached to bones
Joints between the ribs and spine
Joints in the hips, shoulders, knees and feet.
In advanced stages, the following signs and symptoms may develop
Restricted expansion of the chest
Stiff, inflexible spine
Loss of appetite
Eye inflammation (uveitis)
If you have any of these symptoms or related concerns, please schedule a visit to a KKT Centre near you for a thorough assessment.
Every morning and evening as well as whenever I did any physical activities, my joints would hurt. I could no longer keep taking pain medication as it had resulted in severe stomach and intestinal bleeding. After KKT my body has turned completely around and I feel strong and in control again. My muscles, neck, back, legs and joints no longer hurt. Now I am only requiring a monthly visit to the KKT Centre to keep on top to things.
