“Download this app. This app has a lot of great info... I showed this app to my Rheumatologist and my Physical Therapist, at separate appointments, they were both blown away with the quality of the information and confirmed the exercise programs to indeed be A.S. specific and correct.

Ratings and Reviews
Great introduction to AS
This app is great as an introduction to AS, not only for the newly diagnosed but also for loved ones looking for a gentle introduction to the complicated disease and its management. The recommended home exercises and instructions are an especially helpful resource.
More information about the wide and varying range of drug treatments could make this app better. The growing use and success of medical cannabis (CBDs and THC) in the treatment of AS should be included!
This app is fantastic for learning more about AS. I have recently been diagnosed with it and find this a valuable resource.
Very good app!
I suffer from AS and this app covers everything.
