Spondyloarthritis/ Ankylosing Spondylitis

The spondyloarthropathies represent a group of auto-inflammatory conditions where the primary symptoms are inflammatory back pain and joint involvement. These conditions have overlap with inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s / colitis) as well as inflammatory eye diseases (uveitis/ iritis).  ARTUS Health Centre and Bruce Clark Physiotherapy have extensive background in diagnosis and treating these conditions


Osteoporosis is disease that results in low bone density / mass.  It is generally without symptoms until a fracture occurs potentially leading to severe consequences.  There are many reasons why someone might be at risk for osteoporosis.  Doctors at ARTUS are experts in the management of complicated osteoporosis and provide specialty opinion and care in this field.

Fracture Liaison Service

Patients that have recently fractured a bone are at higher risk of further fractures. ARTUS is pleased to offer a multidisciplinary specialty clinic where these individuals can be assessed in a timely manner and offered the very best management and treatment options.
