Ankylosing Spondylitis is a diverse type of chronic inflammation of the spine and also Sacroiliac Joints. The Sacroiliac Joints are positioned in the low back where the Sacrum (the bone straight above the tailbone) joins the iliac bones (bones on either side of the upper buttocks). Chronic inflammation in these areas creates pain and stiffness in and around the spine. Over time, chronic spinal infection (Spondylitis) can lead to a full cementing synchronically (Fusion) of the vertebrae, and a process referred to as Ankylosis. Ankylosis leads to loss of movement of the spine. It is also known as “Bamboo Spine.”
