Thanks for writing to us.
Ankylosing spondylitis is an inflammatory disorder affecting various ligaments and causing ossification of the same. It leads to progressive stiffness with restriction of the body movements. In acute attacks we always prescribe the anti-inflammatory medicine. However in long run you need to keep yourself quite flexible and regular back muscle stretching and exercise if possible swimming will definitely delay the body stiffness. I would suggest to consult a rheumatologist for medicinal treatment. Thanks.
