Spondylitis is a condition of inflammation of the vertebral joints, and it is one of the most common causes of back and neck pain. It is a form of spondylopathy which is often not identified until it has fully developed and is causing pain in vertebrae or spine. The pain caused due to spondylitis is usually around the cervical region of the neck, shoulder and lower spine, and sometimes pain occurs further downwards. So, physical therapy such as stretching exercises and spinal exercises are recommended to improve back pain and reduce long-term impact.
Arthritis is a condition of swelling and tenderness that occurs in one or more of the joints. It causes pain and stiffness, which worsens with age. There are two most common types of arthritis – osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Some of the common and possible cause includes normal wear and tear, injury, abnormal metabolism, immune system problem, and inheritance such as osteoarthritis infections. Physiotherapy helps patients to manage pain, minimize joint damage and improve the function and quality of life of patients.
