Summary

Ankylosing Spondlitis (AS) is a chronic, rheumatic disease. Foot and ankle involvement may stem from both postural changes in patients seen spinal deformity with the progress of the disease and enthesitis. The purpose of the study is to investigate the relationship plantar pressure distribution and balance, mobility and disease activity in AS patients and to compare AS patients with and without postural changes and healthy subjects.

Description

Ankylosing Spondlitis (AS) is a chronic, rheumatic disease. Reduction in flexibility and mobility is important factors that can cause impairment quality of life, reduction of exercise tolerance and pulmonary capacity with the progression of AS. Extra articular symptoms such as neurologic, cardiovascular and pulmonary involvement affect morbidity and mortality rate. Foot and ankle involvement may stem from both postural changes in patients seen spinal deformity with the progress of the disease and enthesitis. ahl et al. concluded that 52% of AS patients had foot involvement but 35% of the patients had symptoms. To be determined plantar pressure distribution is important to be decided body weight distribution, postural control and selection of shoes. The purpose of the study is to investigate the relationship plantar pressure distribution and balance, mobility and disease activity in AS patients and to compare AS patients with and without postural changes and healthy subjects.
