Thanks for your query

I'm Dr Sudhir Kumar

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Spondylitis cannot be completely cured. Its treatment is available. Analgesic such as ibuprofen are given for pain relief. Glucosamine is helpful in delaying degenerative changes and to some extent repair it. Back exercises are useful. Vitamin and trace elements are helpful. Further treatment is done according to type and part involved in spondylitis. You can discuss with your doctor about it.

Hope your query get answered. If you have any clarification then I will be happy to help you.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
