Follow-up checks

If you have spondyloarthritis, your healthcare team should work together to make sure that your condition and medicines are monitored, and that you get specialist help when you need it, for example, to manage flares, symptoms or other health problems.

If you have axial spondyloarthritis, you might need a check‑up every 2 years to look for signs of osteoporosis. This is a condition that weakens bones, making them fragile and more likely to break. Your healthcare team can give you more information.

If you have a fall or hurt yourself, you should seek medical advice, particularly if you are in pain.
