Preventive Measures

While there is no known cure for ankylosing spondylitis, there are several strategies that can help manage the symptoms and slow the progression of the condition. Regular exercise, particularly stretching and strengthening exercises, can help improve flexibility and reduce the risk of deformities. Physical therapy and posture training can also be beneficial in maintaining proper spinal alignment. Medications may be prescribed to manage pain and inflammation. 

In some cases, biologic therapies that target specific molecules involved in the inflammatory process may be recommended. It is important for individuals with AS to work closely with their healthcare team to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses their specific needs. Additionally, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and avoiding smoking, can help support overall well-being and potentially reduce the impact of AS.
