But since this condition is managed best when it’s treated early, it’s important to help people understand what it is, what symptoms it causes, and who it affects. That’s why Spine-health, and our sister site Arthritis-health.com, are committed to sharing high-quality, accurate, and understandable information about ankylosing spondylitis.

One of the ways we do this is through our illustrated ankylosing spondylitis video, which explains just how it develops and progresses in the body.


This award-winning video was just recognized for the third time by winning a Silver Award from the 2015 Davey Awards, which recognizes outstanding creative endeavors from small agencies.

Previous awards for this video include a Gold win in the 2015 W3 Awards and a Spring 2015 Silver (Consumer Health) Digital Health Award.
