What is axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA)?

axSpA is a type of inflammatory arthritis that affects the spine and other joints. Inflammatory arthritis, like axSpA is an autoimmune disease. This is different to other types of musculoskeletal  conditions, like osteoarthritis or spondylosis that are often caused by 'wear and tear' over time. 

axSpA is an umbrella term used to describe anklyosing spondylitis (AS) and non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA).

MyAS uses axSpA to refer to both conditions. Information specific to AS or nr-axSpA will use these terms.
