5 Tips for Beating Ankylosing Spondylitis Fatigue
When you’re on your last thread, working out is likely the furthest thing from your mind. Still, regular workouts can help improve energy levels and flexibility over time.
Exercise is also important for keeping your bones strong against osteoporosis, a disease that AS patients are at an increased risk of developing later in life.
Start with short walks and work your way up to longer, higher intensity exercises. Swimming is a great exercise for people with AS. Also, you may find it easier to fall asleep at night if you’ve worked out that day. Just make sure not to exercise too late in the evening as it can actually disrupt your sleep.
