SUAS Information Booklet
The SUAS booklet is part of a programme for people affected byAnkylosing Spondylitis (AN-kuh-low-sing sponduh-LIE-tis) or AS for short. You may be affected either by having the condition yourself or by knowing somebody who has. At the AnkylosingSpondylitis Association of Ireland (ASAI) we have produced this booklet to help you:
Better understand your condition
Talk with your doctor about your diagnosis and treatment
Learn about possible treatments and useful tips for living with AS
As with most medical conditions, the more you know about it the better you can manage it. This booklet, developed in association with Waterford Regional Hospital Rheumatology Unit, is not just aimed at people with the disease as family, friends, work colleagues and possibly the person’s GP, might all be interested in knowing more about the illness.
Understanding Inflammatory Back Pain
Back pain is an all too familiar problem that can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain that may leave you incapacitated. This is a particular issue for those living with Ankylosing Spondylitis.
