Does exercise and posture training work for patients with ankylosing spondylitis?
Patients diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) should have exercise at the center of their treatment program. A physical therapist can individualize a plan specific to your needs. Keeping a healthy weight is also important for individuals with AS as It reduces stress on painful joints. Exercising in water may be helpful for many people with AS.
