  3. Hi Mia,
    Thanks for sharing your story! I was a gymnast for 15 years during my childhood, so I can relate to your desire to compete. I’m 41 years old now, and continue to do handstands and cartwheels as much as I can on good days (mostly in my living room now). When I was diagnosed with AS two years ago, the doctor at Mayo Clinic told me “gymnastics probably saved you.” The habits I learned from gymnastics- daily movement, stretching, working with pain- have benefited me in management of my illness. I hope the same for you and wish you the best!
