The Ankylosing Spondylitis Boot Camp Program Course is an online 6-week training course designed to improve short and long-term pain, stiffness, and posture. 

AS is a type of inflammatory arthritis that affects the spine. It is an auto-immune disease but the exact cause is unknown, although there is a strong genetic component. About 3% of low back pain is caused by AS. It usually presents in early adulthood and is 10 times more common in males. It can progress slowly over time and result in spinal fusion (ankylosing), limited mobility, and a stooped posture.

What are the current treatments?

  • Surgery is rarely required for AS
  • Spinal injections for AS are generally not recommended
  • Anti-inflammatory and biologic drugs are very effective, especially in the early stages of the condition
  • The best approach for AS combines pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments
  • There is no cure for AS
