Useful exercises for ankylosing spondylitis

Mark Reed, Lionel Schachna



These exercises will help you manage your ankylosing spondylitis more easily. You may find them a little difficult at first, but it is worth investing some time in learning them properly. They should become part of your normal daily routine. Aim to do them once a day or, even better, twice. Also try to do at least one activity each day that makes you out of breath.
