What are the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis?

Many people with AS experience stiffness and pain in the lower back. This pain can be sporadic and vary in intensity. These symptoms can progress to the upper spine.

Other symptoms vary from person to person. These symptoms can include:

  • loss of flexibility
  • spinal fusion
  • Blurred vision
  • light sensitivity
  • red and watery eyes
  • eye pain
  • reduced lung capacity
  • difficulty in breathing
  • cauda equina syndrome
  • feeling generally unwell
  • stomach or bowel problems

Although AS is progressive, not everyone will experience a spinal fusion or serious complications.

Symptoms of AS can be atypical in women. For example, symptoms can start in the neck instead of the lower back.

What causes ankylosing spondylitis?

The exact cause of AS is unknown, although genetics play a role. The genetic marker HLA-B27 is present in 95% of Caucasians with AS. This association of genes varies among ethnic and racial groups. Overall, carrying the HLA-B27 gene can present a 40% risk of developing AS. Many people with this genetic marker do not develop AS, and you don't have to be HLA-B27 positive to have AS.

Five or six other genes may have a connection with AS. When these genes combine with a bacterial infection or other environmental factor, they can trigger AS. More research is needed in this region.

Risk factors to consider

AS usually starts in adolescence or early adulthood and continues throughout your life. It occurs more often in men than in women. Therefore, if you are a teenager or young adult, your risk of AS is higher. Other risk factors are a family history of AS, having the genetic marker HLA-B27, and frequent gastrointestinal infection .

Natural therapies

  • Stretching

Stretching helps build flexibility and can reduce pain. Consider adding the spine stretch or the lower back rotation stretch to your daily routine.

  • Thermal therapy

Apply a hot water bottle or heating pad to the affected area to reduce stiffness and pain. You can also use moist or dry heat. A hot bath can also help, especially before exercise. Do not use heat therapy without consulting your doctor if you have diabetes , deep vein thrombosis, vascular disease , open sores, or skin conditions such as dermatitis .

  • Cold therapy

Applying an ice pack, cold gel, or bag of frozen vegetables to painful joints can help reduce swelling. After exercise, cold therapy can help reduce inflammation. Do not apply ice for more than 20 minutes at a time. Do not use cold therapy without consulting your doctor if you have circulation problems.

  • Acupuncture

The acupuncture is an ancient remedy against pain. This involves inserting fine needles into specific points on your skin. It is believed to activate your body's pain - relieving hormones . Some people report that acupuncture relieves AS pain.

  • Massage therapy

Massage helps you relax. It can also help you feel more flexible, so that you can exercise or stretch. The massage may cause pain sensitive points around the spine. If this happens, avoid these areas and only use light massage techniques until the pain improves.

  • Movement

The more you sit, the stiffer you will feel. Get up, move, and stretch regularly. If you have a desk job, take a “get up and move” break every hour.

  • Exercise

Gentle exercise programs like yoga and Pilates are great for AS because they incorporate stretching. Swimming can also be beneficial because it is easy on your joints. Strengthening exercises with weights can help build muscle, which supports joints affected by AS. Talk with your doctor or physical therapist to determine the best exercise plan for you.

  • Alexander technique

AS often leaves you hunched over. It is essential to practice good posture. The Alexander Technique teaches you to be aware of your posture throughout the day. It also teaches you how to correct poor posture and can be helpful for people with AS. 

  • Tens therapy

TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. This therapy uses electric current to stimulate nerves throughout the body to control pain. The electrodes are usually applied to the painful site and connected to a TENS machine . It is believed that when TENS stimulates the nerves, it cancels pain signals. The TENS technique is usually taught by a physiotherapist and can be continued at home.

  • Stop smoking

Smokers, especially males, are at risk for greater damage to the spine from AS than non-smokers. Stopping smoking not only helps reduce the damage caused by AS, but also improves your overall health.


Although most people need some type of medical treatment for AS, natural remedies can also help reduce symptoms.

Not all alternative treatments are suitable for all people with AS. Some people can be successful with yoga and acupuncture. Others may feel better using cold therapy and massage.

It is important to consult your doctor about your medications and any alternative therapy you are considering. If you experience any side effects or pain from alternative therapies, talk to your doctor as soon as possible.
