Spondylitis often refers to a group of chronic conditions that involve inflammation of the spinal vertebrae or facet joints, including ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, undifferentiated spondyloarthropathy, juvenile spondyloarthropathy, reactive arthritis and enteropathic arthritis. Spondylitis causes inflammation in the spine, specifically in the vertebrae and the  facet joints. In severe cases, the facet joints and vertebrae can swell and move out of alignment in the spine. This can restrict movement, cause stiffness and possibly impact a surrounding nerve.
