Spondyloarthritis Ayurvedic Treatment

This condition causes several other problems like low back pain, eye diseases, arthritis of joints in arms/ legs etc. The major types of spondyloarthropathies are ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, reactive arthritis and enteropathic arthritis. Genetics may play a major role in the manifestation of this condition. It is not a curable disease, and hence only symptomatic care is available.
