Axial spondyloarthritis/ankylosing spondylitis (axSpA/AS) imparts a significant burden on patients and caretakers. It negatively affects not only patient well-being and quality of life but also productivity during the prime of patients’ working lives. PCPs at the frontlines of care for patients with back pain are ideally positioned to identify individuals who may be suffering from axSpA/AS. Identification relies on a thorough understanding of the disease and its characteristics in addition to a high index of suspicion. This education will help PCPs to shorten the delay between symptom presentation and diagnosis and to improve rates of referral to rheumatology for diagnostic evaluation and confirmation.
