Ankylosing spondylitis is a form of chronic inflammatory arthritis that can cause significant pain and disability. Most often, it is characterized by back pain and stiffness. The condition primarily affects the lower back and joints. It can, however, affect other areas of the body. The exact cause of ankylosing spondylitis is not known, but researchers suspect that genetic, environmental, and immune system factors are involved in causing it. Typically, men are more at risk for the condition than women. Treatment for people with ankylosing spondylitis may involve medications and lifestyle changes, among other things.
