I am sorry to hear about your teenage daughter's problem. I am, however, not aware of any dietary interventions that can assist with this condition. Because ankylosing spondylitis is classified as a chronic and usually progressive inflammatory disease I can only suggest that the use of omega-3 fatty acids (found in Salmon oil capsules) may help to alleviate some of the inflammatory symptoms, because the omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties. .
