Normative values for the Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index in a UK population

Measurements were taken by physiotherapists following an agreed protocol. This therefore highlighted the need for further work to explore if this was a coincidental finding or if in fact this should be expected. We would therefore recommend similar studies using larger samples in both UK and other populations.

Outcome Measures Occupational Health. The Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index BASMI is an index comprising 5 measures of spinal and hip mobility in AS that has been primarily validated in the setting of a physiotherapeutic intervention and has not been validated in relation to functional outcomes.

This total is then divided by 5 to give the average. Current evidence suggests that the diagnosis of AS most commonly occurs between the ages of 25 and 34 years [ 1516 ]. Such information is important to someone who is newly diagnosed and being assessed clinically for the first wpondylitis, potentially informing their expectations about treatment effects.
