Definition of Uvea?

The uvea is the name given to the area that is comprised of three distinct structures located in the center of the eyeball. These structures are so intimately connected that disease or inflammation in one region will quickly spread to another.

Many diseases like syphilis, tuberculosis and even rheumatoid arthritis can affect the uvea, though serious damage is rare. Luckily, inflammation in this area responds quickly to treatment.

What is the Uveal Tract?

This area of the eye is made of three specialized parts: the choroid, the ciliary body and the iris of the eye.

Back problems are a very common source of pain and disability, and the terms Ankylosing Spondylitis and spondylosis are often used when talking about them. These conditions are easily confused, but are  quite distinct.

Ankylosing spondylitis denotes any disease which gives rise to inflammation of the joints between vertebrae as well as the sacroiliac ligaments. The joints usually involved are those at the bottom of the spine, between the sacral vertebrae the pelvic bones.

Spondylosis is a completely different disorder of the spine, resulting from degenerative rather than inflammatory.

Perfect Posture Is A Myth

We all have been taught not to slouch and to stand up straight, and for good reason: Bad posture is the perceived culprit for back pain, fatigue and headaches. In reality, it is a symptom of some underlying problem we don’t know about yet.

If the person has the wrong posture, a physical therapist can examine the core problem, like muscular tightness, spasms or weakness, and provide the relevant exercise routine to follow.
