Abstract

Introduction/Aims The first complaint in ankylosing spondylitis is usually sacroiliac joint pain and morning stiffness. Aside from inflammation, sacroiliac joint pain is related to joint damage and mechanical stress. Many different methods are applied in the treatment of sacroiliac joint pain. This study aimed to investigate the effects of sacroiliac joint mobilisation on pain, function and mobility in patients with ankylosing spondylitis.
