Ankylosing spondylitis - our treatment

Ankylosing spondylitis cannot be cured. However there are numerous treatment options that can have a positive influence on the progress of your condition. Our spinal experts have many years' experience in treating ankylosing spondylitis. The primary goal of your treatment is to reduce the pain caused by inflammation and to preserve the mobility of your spine as much as possible. The emphasis is on conservative rather than surgical treatment, for example specialist physiotherapy. Surgery is very uncommon in ankylosing spondylitis. It may, however, be a useful option in severe cases in order to re-straighten your body and give you back your quality of life.
