How can I find treatment of Ankylosing Spondylitis?

Spondylosis refers to an inflammatory condition that causes the vertebrae in the spine to fuse over time. This fusion makes the spine less flexible, resulting in a hunched posture. Breathing deeply can be difficult if the ribs are impacted. Although there is no cure for ankylosing spondylitis, therapies can help to alleviate symptoms and reduce the disease's progression. Therefore, ankylosing spondylitis patients can expect a similar life expectancy as the general population.
