Naturopathy (or Naturopathic medicine) is a philosophy and approach to addressing health concerns by understanding the healing capacity of the body and the power in nature (ie natural remedies), along with treating the cause and the whole person, educating patients and communities, and knowing prevention is the best medicine. That being said spondylitis is an autoimmune and inflammatory condition which be treated through several therapies or remedies. To treat the whole person (ie. you) it is best that you work with a Naturopathic physician in your area to have him/her assess your condition and make a recommendation that will best address the autoimmune and inflammatory processes you have going on.
Spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the spine, causing pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. While conventional treatments such as medications and physical therapy can help manage symptoms, many people are turning to natural remedies to alleviate their pain and improve their overall quality of life. As a bio-individuality coach and natural medicine practitioner, I believe that each person's body is unique and has its innate ability to heal itself. By understanding your body's specific needs and imbalances, you can take steps to support your body's natural healing processes and improve your overall health.
Acupuncture can be tried.

Yes, there are several depending on degree of inflammation. I highly recommend consulting with a licensed naturopathic doctor to evaluate options individualized for you.

Ankylosing Spondylitis may involve morning stiffness and tightness, often occurs in the major muscle groups such as abdominal, gluteus maximus, hamstrings and quadriceps. You may experience back pain where the stiffness get worse with rest, so you may find the pain worse in the morning, just when you want to get your day started. You might also have pain and stiffness in other areas of your body, such as your neck, shoulders, hips, or feet. Often the cause can be unknown, you may have slept, sat, or had your body in an awkward position for a length of time. It comes about from extra tension that has been put upon these muscles. An example I had, I was sitting at my computer, unknown to me, I had my left leg wrapped around my right leg this led to excruciating pain around my foot and ankle area up to my left thigh muscle. It can be from gripping your computer mouse too tight, being tense and when sleeping your neck and shoulder area may suffer.
