- Extreme pain contraction in the back or the cervical region of the neck, shoulders, and the lower spine. Stiffness.
Spondilitis is the result of an inflammation of the vertebral joints. The problem with detecting the condition is the fact that it develops rather under the radar and only comes to prominence once the condition has fully developed – at which time the amount of pain and suffering it causes is substantial. The pain is usually concentrated around the cervical region of the neck, shoulder and lower spine with the instances and stings of pain flowing further downwards. ‘What is spondylitis’ will defer from instance to instance because of the fact that the condition categorizes three main types. The three types of spondylitis are: Cervical spondylitis – which affects the cervical spine, causing the pain to spread towards the back of the neck.
Lumbar spondylitis – which causes the pain in the lumbar region.
Ankylosing spondylitis- which is primarily a disease that affects the sacroiliac joints – causing stiffness in the neck, jaw, shoulders, hips and knees.
Types Of Spondylitis :
Cervical Spondylitis: Neck pain that affects the cervical spin is called Cervical Spondylitis. This pain can spread to the rear of the neck, both sides of the shoulder, collar bone, and shoulder joints. It restricts neck movement, and the arms become motionless due to weakness in muscles.
Lumbar Spondylitis : Pain in the lumbar region causes Lumbar Spondylitis.
Spondylitis Deformans :: Also known as Ankylosing Spondylitis, this disease affects the sacroiliac joints, vertebral column, shoulders, and hip joints. The spine usually becomes very rigid. The knees, heels, hips, shoulders, neck, and jaw also become stiff.
