Exercises for ankylosing spondylitis should be gentle and
frequent. The exercises shown here are good to do twice each day. Don't do them
first thing in the morning, when you may feel more stiff. In the morning, take
a walk to get loosened up for the day. Then try doing these exercises around
lunch time and in the evening. Or, do one or two exercises at a time and spread
them out through the day. You can do the exercises in any order that you
Talk with your doctor or physical therapist if you have
questions about how to do these or any other exercises.
