Finding Spondyloarthritis Specialists

Posted on July 29, 2019

Spondyloarthritis affects one in 100 people, yet it remains relatively unknown among the general public and most physicians.1 Many people who seek treatment for low back pain, one of the most common symptoms of spondyloarthritis, go undiagnosed and untreated because of lack of awareness.

Spartan, a North American network of health care professionals with expertise in spondyloarthritis, offers a member directory to help individuals find a doctor experienced in treating the condition.

Spondyloarthritis treatment can help alleviate pain, improve mobility, and reduce the rate of disease progression. Without treatment, spondyloarthritis may progress, resulting in the fusion of the vertebrae, reduced spinal mobility, and other complications.2 Specialist physicians can help develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your type of spondyloarthritis, lifestyle, and treatment goals.1
