More than medication
Keeping active and taking exercise are very important if you have ankylosing spondylitis. These can help you maintain a range of movements, keep your spine flexible and pain-free and stop you from stooping.
If you are diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis your doctor will usually refer you to a physiotherapist, a health professional trained in using physical treatments. These can include heat and cold, water, and electrical impulses as well as exercises.
