Thank you Katy. I have Spondylosis, which brings me to my next question; am I on the correct website. Is this website just for those who have Spondylitis?

hi @A MySpondylitisTeam Member Wow I just found some pages for you with a lot of different spellings. Spondylosis refers to a degenerative process affecting the vertebral disc and facet joints that gradually develops with age.
This is about Spondylitis, it's a lot of vidios. https://www.spine-health.com/conditions/spondyl... I hope this helps you some. Hugs
