What is Spondylitis and Spinal Degeneration?

Spinal Spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory dieses that primarily causes pain and inflammation of the joints between the vertebrae of the spine. Spondylitis may also cause inflammation and pain in other parts of the body.

Spondylitis affects more males than females and onset generally occurs between late adolescence and age 40. The KKT process plays an integral role in stimulating the connective tissues of the spine to promote cellular regeneration.
