We see a lot of patients with inflammatory back pain in our clinics. Some of these patients have Spondyloarthritis or the prototype condition, Ankylosing Spondylitis.

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.
