Summary of "The comparative efficacy of group- versus home-based exercise programs in patients with ankylosing spondylitis: Protocol for a meta-analysis."

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is an important factor to not only cause employment obstacle, but also result in serious social economic load. Several randomized controlled trials investigated the efficacy of group- versus home-based exercise programs in patients with AS. This systematic review will collect and summarize the available evidence to realize the effectiveness of group- and home-based programs in patients with AS.
