Ankylosing Spondylitis

Postby healingfaerie on Sun May 20, 2012 9:17 pm

How do I treat this client? He is healthy-looking, and in his early 30's probably, and has A.S. I am unsure of how to go about an effective treatment regime with him.
Have any of you experienced practice with this disorder? Any advice? Thanks!

Help him maintain as much spinal mobility as possible. My preferred method for this is Active Isolated Stretching, but there are other methods of active therapy and corrective exercise that might help him. He might benefit as much (or more) from working with an enlightened personal trainer as from working with a therapist.
