Staying Active and Spondylitis

Posted on March 28, 2018

"Started physical therapy for my ankle yesterday, man it feels so good to be moving after 6 weeks of not being allowed to do much. Can’t wait to get back to “normal” and add back in a little exercise and movement to get my AS symptoms back under control." - A member of MySpondylitisTeam

On MySpondylitisTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with axSpA and other types of spondylitis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Staying active is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about staying active:

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could do to lose weight?

I've been told to do pelvic floor exercises but this also really hurts. Any advice?

A member shares that even though it hurts, she still stretches and remains positive.

Here are some conversations about staying active:

I was just doing my morning stretches and wanted to recommend some free physical therapy.

Had a good day despite the rain. Moved around quite a bit, did some walking.

I have finally went to PT. It's a different place and I like it.

Can you relate?

Walking against the rivers current at a Recreation center pool is really good exercise for Spondylitis and other things.
