What is Lumber Spondilitis?
Lumber Spondilitis or spondylitis is a condition where there is an
inflammation of lumber (lower vertebral) spine, popularly called as Back
ache. The inflammation can be mild, moderate or severe leading to a
range of severity of symptoms. There is not only inflammation of the
vertebra but also some amount of fusing, which gives painful stiffness.
The symptoms of varying degree of
pain associate with stiffness. There may be restricted mobility of the
back, disturbing day to day life activities. There may also be deformity
of the spine over the period of time.
Ankylosing Spondilitis is a similar condition which is more severe and
considered to be an auto-immune disease, related with HLA-B-27 gene. The
stiffness associated with muscle spasm leads to stiff-spine, often
compared with a bamboo spine.
Rheumatoid Arthritis: Similar
condition but affects more of the multiple and often large
joints such as knee, shoulder, fingers and back. Positive Rh
factor is a diagnosing modality.
Homoeopathic Treatment for Lumber Spondylitis:
Yes, homoeopathy does offer significant treatment for this
condition. The treatment is targeted at relieving the
inflammation and stiffness, making the life comfortable.
Also, the underlying process leading to such chronic
inflammation is addressed using the homoeopathic medicines.
However, homoeopathy cannot revert the deformity.
