Spondylitis is actually an inflammatory disorder of the spine. As opposed to spondylosis, which is a degenerative disorder.

So, since it is an inflammatory problem, the inflammation has to be taken care of. This type of spine problem is usually taken care of by a rheumatologist.

Probably the most common type of spondylitis is Ankylosing Spondylitis.

Again, the inflammation needs to be addressed. This is usually done with medication. But, speak with your physician about it.

Good luck.
