Your SpAce

Welcome to Your SpAce. Here we build skills together to live life with axial SpA.

Your SpAce is for anyone with axial spondyloarthritis (axial SpA), including ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Whether you’ve just been diagnosed or you’ve been living with the condition for years, Your SpAce is here to support you.

We developed Your SpAce in collaboration with people with axial SpA and healthcare professionals. You shared with us that pain, fatigue and flares can be difficult to get to grips with. Together we developed this series of videos and resources focusing on these topics to help you develop ways to manage your axial SpA symptoms.

We’re a community, so take your time watching the videos and do get involved in the comments sections. We can help each other by sharing experiences and advice.

We know it can feel lonely when you live with a long-term condition. We’re running free monthly online meetings. They’re relaxed and friendly. An opportunity to meet other people with axial SpA, get support and share experiences.

Explore our topics below to understand more about axial SpA. Discover ways to manage your symptoms, with our videos and resources.

You can download a booklet of Your SpAce resources to print. You can also download to complete on your computer. Simply download the document, open with your usual PDF reader, click on the text boxes to complete, and then save a copy.
