Unfortunately not.  I believe physical therapy and painkillers can help but there is no cure.

No cure.  I have AS and use methotrexate and Enbrel.  I am virtually pain free and live a normal life.  Occasionally I do have flares but other than that those 2 drugs gave me back my quality of life.

No cure. Have suffered for years and have periods of flareups when I can hardly stand up and the pain is crippling, and other periods when the pain  virtually goes away. Physical therapy like a massage of the sorest area with heat rub and painkillers are the only treatment. Sorry.
