Spondyloarthropathy is an umbrella term for a group of seronegative inflammatory conditions, which have axial and peripheral symptoms. The primary aim of treatment is to reduce inflammation. Issues such as pain, stiffness, fatigue, sleep disturbance, depression, reduced physical activity levels, and increased cardiovascular disease risk also need to be addressed. There are various pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments available for spondyloarthropathy, including exercise therapy. Physiotherapists and occupational therapists play a key role in managing these chronic conditions, from the early stages through to the late stages of disease.
The aim of this course is to introduce the pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments available for spondyloarthropathy.
