For the Newly Diagnosed

So you've been diagnosed with spondylitis and you're unsure what the future may hold. Am I right? This video by the Spondylitis Association of America discusses resources for treatments, medical management, medication pipeline, diet, exercise, education and support groups for ankylosing spondylitis (AS) axial spondyloarthritis and related diseases such as psoriatic arthritis. Also discusses complications and comorbidities such as uveitis, psoriasis, IBD (ulcerative colitis and Crohns), spinal fusing and disability.
