Hello there....., Treatment for AS focuses on reducing pain and stiffness, preventing deformities and allowing for the continuation of normal activities. The options include: analgesics... NSAIDs are the recommended first-line treatment for AS. They help relieve the symptoms – pain and stiffness – that come with this condition.... DMARDs can alter the course of AS. Some patients who don’t respond well to NSAIDs may be given a traditional DMARD to reduce pain and swelling of the small joints of the hands or feet.....
