Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum,
It is a inflammatory Disease which causes the vertebrae in the spine to fuse restricting their movements. You have to consult a Orthopedist for this. The goal of treatment is to relieve pain and stiffness. Physiotherapy would be of great help. Surgery is needed in worst of cases and it not usually recommended. If he is a Smoker, he has to stop it completely.
