Massage Therapy for Ankylosing Spondylitis – Regina Boyle Wheeler
A massage for ankylosing spondylitis can be very helpful. “Joint stiffness can often cause you to assume uncomfortable postures and positions, which leads to overuse and strain of the muscles,” said Jonathan Kirschner, MD, Assistant Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “Massage can certainly help with muscle pain and stiffness,” said Dr. Kirschner.
