It also explores patient attitudes and perceptions towards treatment, the healthcare professionals managing their condition, as well as identifying the types of support and education patients need at key stages of their journey.

AS is a form of progressive arthritis due to chronic inflammation of the joints in the spine. Most patients typically first experience AS symptoms in their teen years up to the age of 30 years old, meaning symptoms impact AS patients for a long period of time into their adult years.

Head of Living With, Mariel Metcalfe commented, “People living with AS and nr-AxSpa experience high levels of unmet need, and diagnosis of the condition can be lengthy for some. The report focuses on not only the experiences of these people, but also what more can be done to help support them medically, emotionally and socially.”
