Ankylosing Spondylitis is an autoimmune disease which is progressive and causes inflammation and arthritic reactions in the spine and large joints. This is characterised by pain and stiffness from the neck to the lower back, fused vertebrae, paralysing and stooped over posture. Being a systemic disease it can also cause fatigue, fever, loss in appetite, eye inflammation, and sometimes even heart and lung problems.
The exact cause of this condition is not known with the symptoms only showing at later stages of the progression of the disease. It makes detection of the condition very difficult and treatment very hard with surgery and heavy dose pain killers being the only allopathic option. Hence natural and alternative therapies are extremely effective for the treatment of this condition.

This procedure is extremely safe if performed by trained professionals using disposable or sterile needles. This treatment does not provide instant relief but provides an effective solution to the problem of Ankylosing Spondylitis over a period of time.
