Unformatted text preview: People with this protein are at greater risk for developing AS. X-rays of the spin and pelvis are obtained to look at the joints and hips these joints must be affected for proper diagnoses of AS. Long term AS leads to a progressive decrease in range of motion in the affected bones and eventually no range of motion at all. Currently there is no cure for AS. This disease worsens over time.

AS sufferers should have regular visits with their doctor to identify new symptoms or if additional treatment is needed.[Med] References Eck, J. C. (2014). DO, MS.
