HealthQuest provides treatment for spondylitis or ankylosing spondylitis, a form of arthritis that affects the joints in the spine and other areas of the body. Treatment at our pain management center in Brooklyn, New York, is designed to relieve the pain and symptoms associated with this condition as well as to prevent/delay complications.

The symptoms of spondylitis include:

  • Stiffness in the back, spine and even peripheral joints
  • Pain in the shoulders, ribs, hips, knees, and feet
