Just a few months ago, the American College of Rheumatology, the Spondylitis Association of America, and the Spondyloarthritis Research and Treatment Network published updated recommendations for treating ankylosing spondylitis (AS), and non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA). SAA has just created a condensed and patient focused overview, and we’re excited to share it with you.

I love to ride motorcycles. Feeling my body in motion on any type of two-wheeled contraption is a deep-seated passion that started with the first tiny bicycle I got as a 5-year-old child. Riding is my alchemy of body and mind sensations that feed and nurture my spirit as I roll, lean, and sail through the world on two wheels. When I’m traveling on a motorcycle, it’s a place of calm retreat, intense awareness, and soul-healing energy that combine into a life-giving experience far greater than the sum of its parts.
