Given our expertise in this area, we've decided to create a range of videos highlighting some of the examination techniques used to help make a diagnosis. You can find these on our Youtube channel.
Rachael Butterworth, our Spondyloarthritis physiotherapist demonstrates on our model, Errol while Dr Roberto Russo facilitates.
This video is an example, and highlights the Modified Schober Test, a test commonly used to help measure the lumbar spine flexibility (or lack of).
