• Physical therapy – a physical therapist can tailor special exercises for you that are specifically aimed at AS. Movement reduces pain and increases mobility, but it’s important to talk to your physical therapist before you attempt your own exercise regime as some exercise could cause damage and they will know what types of exercise are safe.
Contact your local support group or organization for AS sufferers, as some of them sell exercise DVDs for people with AS and you can also make friends with other people going through the same thing.
