Patient Toolkit

  • Spinal pain, almost always in the lower back, is usually the first and most common symptom of axSpA.

Patient Toolkit Introduction

Welcome to the RELIEF Patient Toolkit, a resource center for patients who have been diagnosed with axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA), which includes ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA). For many patients, it is challenging to find accurate, up-to-date information about axSpA/AS, which is a real concern. Better outcomes are achieved when patients are empowered to advocate for themselves and have the background knowledge to fully participate in treatment decisions. This toolkit provides links with information about current treatment options, advice and tips on living with axSpA/AS, and answers to frequently asked questions.
