Spondylitis is a type of arthritis that causes stiffness in the lower back. It affects the spine, from the lower neck to the lower back. The spine’s joints may join together or grow, creating stiffness. The symptoms of spondylitis are as follows:

Pain and stiffness in the back

Pain in ligaments

Overgrowth of bones

Causes of spondylitis

Genetic Inheritance

The family history of spondylitis indicates the genetic causes of the disease.

Bone Spurs

The overgrowth of bones in the spine causes compression of spinal cord and nerves leading to cervical spondylitis.

Dehydrated Spinal Discs

Excessive loss of water from gel-like material vertebrae leads to dry pinal disc and causes spondylitis.

Herniated Discs

Spinal discs can develop cracks, which allows leakage of the internal cushioning material. This material can press on the spinal cord and nerves, resulting in spondylitis.


Injuries speed up the ageing process of bone that leads to spondylitis.

Ligament Stiffness

Ligaments that join two bones can stiffen over time, which affects movements and causes pain.


Some occupations or hobbies involve repetitive movements or heavy lifting (such as construction work). It can cause wear and tear leading to the condition
