Common Symptoms Associated with Ankylosing Spondylitis

Peter Winslow, a Scottsdale-based life coach and owner of GoldMind, helps clients achieve optimal health and personal fulfillment. The author of four books on self-empowerment and healing, Peter Winslow wrote about the powerful strategies he learned to battle the autoimmune disease ankylosing spondylitis (AS) in his book, Heal for Real.

An inflammatory disease that usually affects spinal vertebrae, AS can result in spinal vertebrae being fused, which restricts flexibility and can lead to bad posture and chronic pain. Early signs of AS include stiffness and pain in the neck, low back, and hips, especially after periods of rest. The sacroiliac joint, where the low back meets the hip, and the vertebrae in the low back are frequently affected, as well as the places where tendons, ligaments, or cartilage attach to bones.

While there is no cure for AS, certain treatments can alleviate symptoms and the disease’s progression. Patients should seek medical advice or consider alternative therapies if they experience low back or buttock pain that is getting progressively worse or that wakes them from sleep. As discussed in his book, Heal for Real, Winslow has achieved significant relief from painful AS symptoms by mastering the technique of guided imagery, a research-supported method for natural pain management.
