What is Ankylosing Spondylitis? 

Ankylosing Spondylitis, or AS, is an auto-immune disease. This category of disease is caused when a person’s immune system is hyperactive and malfunctions, attacking the body’s own tissues instead of protecting them and causing chronic inflammation. Ankylosing Spondylitis is characterized by the tissues the immune system attacks, namely all parts of the spine, sacroiliac joints, ribs, sternum, and periphery joints. Although this disease can attack any organ or joint in the body, most patients are diagnosed because of back and hip pain and stiffness. Over time the inflammation causes joint deformities, disability, and chronic pain.

One of the joys of living in California is hot weather.

Often, when the heat hits, all we can think of is cooling off. Safety and preventing injuries can be the farthest thing in mind when we jump in the pool.  However, the Centers for Disease and Protection (CDC) states that the leading cause for injury death in children (ages 1-4) is drowning.
