Diagnosis and management of axial spondyloarthritis

Axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA), whether with x-ray change (ankylosing spondylitis) or without x-ray change (non-radiographic axial SpA), is usually diagnosed many years after the onset of symptoms. Until diagnosis, chronic back pain is commonly experienced by people with this condition. This webinar will help you understand what axSpA is, how is it diagnosed and what are the common treatment and management approaches.

Our presenter: Dr Lionel Schachna





Dr Lionel Schachna is the director of rheumatology at the Austin Hospital. He runs the spondylitis clinic at the Austin Hospital which was established in 2004 and has treated more than 2000 patients with axial spondyloarthritis.
