Recognizing IBP (inflammatory back pain) vs MBP (mechanical back pain)


Non-CME Unbranded Medical Education in collaboration with Amplifire digital Engineering learning tool

Axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) is a chronic and debilitating inflammatory disease primarily affecting the spine and sacroiliac joints. In the United States alone, it is estimated to take 14 years to receive appropriate diagnosis as it's hallmark symptom, inflammatory back pain, can go unnoticed or be misdiagnosed. Due to the challenges in recognizing axSpA, patients are often referred to various healthcare providers in the journey to diagnosis. There is a significant need to increase the proper diagnosis of axSpA among healthcare professionals, especially those that are seeing patients experiencing back pain. Early identification and timely referral to rheumatologists can help mitigate the progressive structural damage and significant patient burden in axSpA patients.
