Ankilozan Spondilit Tedavisinde Egzersizin Önemi

Ankilozan Spondilit (AS), özellikle vertebral kolonda inflamasyonla karekterize seronegatif spondiloartropati grubunun prototipi olan kronik, sistemik romatizmal bir hastalıktır. Bu hastalık, kalıtsal bir hastalıktır ve tedavisi yoktur. Sadece hastaların yaşam kalitelerini arttırmaya yönelik ilaç ve egzersiz tedavisi önerilir. İlaç tedavisi kadar egzersiz tedavisine önem verilmemektedir ya da egzersiz tedavisi kısıtlı yapılmaktadır. Bu hastalığın tedavisi ile ilgili olarak literatür incelendiğinde; ilaç tedavisi kadar egzersiz tedavisinin de önemi vurgulanmaktadır. Bu makalede, ankilozan spondilit tedavisinde egzersizin önemi tartışılmış ve güncel literatür gözden geçirilmiştir.

The Importance of Exercise in Treatment of Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) is a chronic, systemic, rheumatic disease that is a prototype of seronegative spondyloarthopathies characterized by inflammation, especially at the spinal column. This disease is hereditary and cannot be treated. The only suggested treatments of which are exercise and drug are for increasing the quality of life in people with AS. The exercise is not considered as important as the drug treatment or the exercise treatment is limited. A growing body of research reveals that exercise is as crucial as drug treatment in the management of AS. In this article, the importance of exercise in treatment of ankylosing spondylitis is discussed with the evaluation of current literature.
