Community Support

With a broad offering of Support Groups, awareness and connectivity on Social Networks along with Educational Seminars and Events, the Canadian Spondylitis Association has a strong commitment to supporting the Spondylitis Community.

About 4.6 million Canadians live with some form of arthritis.

Spondyloarthritis is seronegative. That is, a blood test will not show the presence of RF, Rheumatoid Factor.

Osteoarthritis is associated with aging whereas inflammatory arthritis can start in children and frequently occurs in young adults.
