Everyday Health—August 15, 2016

Everyday Health recently published an article featuring Dalit Ashany, MD, a rheumatologist at Hospital for Special Surgery, about frequently asked questions regarding ankylosing spondylitis treatment.

For example, Dr. Ashany answers the following question: "How do I treat ankylosing spondylitis?"

The article states, "Doctors usually start by recommending an NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug)." Dr. Ashany says, "We start with a full course, meaning not taken as needed but the maximal dose per day for three to four weeks, to see if there's a response." She adds, "If there's no response to one anti-inflammatory, we try another and do the same thing."
