Effect Of Strengthening Exercise In Patients With Ankylosing Spondylitis
To evaluate the effects of exercise in patients with ankylosing spondylitis using thera-bands at quality of life, functional capacity in patients with BASDAI lower than 4.Evaluate 50 patients with the diagnose of ankylosing spondylitis according to the criteria of the American College of rheumatology provenient from FMUSP at Clinical Hospital of São Paulo.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized

|Official Title:||EVALUATION OF THE EFFECT OF TWO EXERCISES PROGRAMS WITH AND WITHOUT MUSCULAR STRENGTHETING WITH ELASTIC BANDS IN PATIENTS WITH ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS|
- FUNCTIONAL INDEX [ Time Frame: sixteen weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]BASFI - Bath ankylosyng spondylitis functional index
- BASMI [ Time Frame: sixteen weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Bath ankylosing spondylitis motion index
- patient evaluation quality of life [ Time Frame: sixteen weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]BAS-G, ASQOL, SF 12
- flexibility [ Time Frame: sixteen weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]FINGER TO FLOOR DISTANCE, intermaleolar distance,head lateral rotation , head lateral flexion, chest expansibility, Pavelka toracolumbar rotation.
|Study Start Date:||July 2012|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||September 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
|No Intervention: ankylosing spondylitis control|
Active Comparator: ankylosing spondylitis
stretching exercises,30 minutes, twice a week.
Other: stretching exercise
30 minutes, twice a week
Experimental: ankylosing spondylitis exercise
strenghtening exercises,30 minutes, twice a week.
Other: strengthening group
30 minutes, twice a weeks, using thera-bands
The evaluation complies BASFI, BASDAI, BASMI,BAS-G, ASQOL, SF 12,MASES, finger to floor distance, intermaleolar distance, lateral rotation of head, lateral flexion of the head, stiffness VAS, chest expasibility, Pavelka evaluation. All patients are allocatted randomly into 3 groups. One control with no exercise, group 1 with stretching exercise ( 30 minutes) and group 2 with stretching and strenghtening exercise (30 minutes+minutes)
