Full description

The study was planned as a randomized controlled study. Forty participants with a clinically confirmed diagnosis of AS according to ASAS criteria will be recruited from the PAU Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR). These participants who meet the inclusion and exclusion criteria will be randomly divided into 2 groups.

All participants will be informed about the purpose and content of the study and will sign written consent to participate in the study. Participant's age, gender, body mass index, education, occupation, medications, duration of diagnosis, comorbidity, functional status and pain will be questioned and recorded. Group1: Group receiving dynamic balance exercise with tecnobody prokin 252 balance device added to current medical treatment (Intervention group) The first group will be given dynamic balance exercises with the tecnobody prokin 252 device and participants will continue their current medical treatment. These dynamic balance exercises will be performed in 3 days a week for 6 weeks. Each exercise will last 30 minutes. It will take 18 sessions in total. These exercises include 14 balance exercise movements performed on tecnobody prokin 252 balance device (manufactured in Italy). Group 2: Group receiving current medical treatment (control group) Participants in this group will receive only current medical treatment.
