Ankylosing spondylitis, or AS for short, is a form of autoimmune arthritis that targets the spine, although other joints can become involved. It causes inflammation of the spinal joints that can lead to severe, chronic pain, fatigue, and discomfort.

Kickin’ AS was created to be a source of information and inspiration for AS Warriors and their loved ones who wish to better understand and help AS Warriors through their toughest moments. Together we can kick AS and bring awareness to the little known and even less understood disease.

50% of profits made from this website and blog (sales from shops and ads) are donated to the Spondylitis Association of America to help fund research.

This website is not run by medical professionals and is solely the experiences of one Ankylosing Spondylitis Warrior who wishes to help and inspire others who suffer with the complications of autoimmune diseases.
