Ankylosing spondylitis is a form of arthritis which primarily affects the spine, resulting in inflammation of the joints located in the spine as well as the discs between the vertebrae, which make up the spine. This disease is an autoimmune disorder where the body’s immunity system starts acting on its own tissues. In severe cases, the vertebrae fuse together, posing a huge limitation on the mobility of the patient. It’s usually a genetic condition which is more prevalent in men as when compared to women.

Ankylosing Spondylitis is an incurable disease but can be largely managed by treating the symptoms. Since siddha healing incorporates a lot of non-intrusive and therapeutic techniques, it provides a safe alternative to more common, mainstream treatments that involve surgery.

Adopting a healthier diet and lifestyle can help improve the overall well-being of the patient, making it even easier to cope with the disease.
