A non-pharmacologic treatment may have wide-reaching benefits in AS, ranging from weight management to better spinal mobility.

SundstrÃ¶m and colleagues in Sweden have discovered that along with disease duration and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP), lack of exercise leads to spinal immobility in ankylosing spondylitis (AS).1 Scroll through the slides for the details of the study and the take-home points for physicians.
