Ankylosing Spondylitis, Neurologic Perspective (cont.)
Ankylosing Spondylitis Prognosis
Symptoms of pain and stiffness are common and may be moderately severe to severe. People with ankylosing spondylitis have few problems with social interactions, although depression is common.
Most people remain employed, and relatively few develop severe functional disability. Disability correlates with the duration of disease, disease activity, and spinal mobility. Peripheral joint involvement also results in greater impairment.
