About Ankylosing Spondylitis
Ankylosing Spondylitis(AS) is a painful, progressive rheumatic disease. It mainly affects the spine and sacroiliac joints but it can also affect other joints, tendons and ligaments.
Other areas such as the eyes, lungs, bowel and heart can also be involved. Ankylosing means 'fusing together'. Spondylitis indicates inflammation of the vertebrae.
