The efficacy of non-invasive VNS therapy in patients with axial SpA has never been studied. This study will assess the benefit-risk balance of the therapy through a randomized double-blind cross over clinical trial. This multi-center study will be conducted in rheumatology departments of 17 public hospitals in France. A transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulator Tens Eco 2 SCHWA MEDICO™ France will be used in this study. Before the beginning of the study, a VNS practical training seminar will be organized in order for all future investigators. All patients eligible for this study must have been previously treated according to national and international guidelines for patients with axial SpA. Adult patients with axial SpA diagnosed and followed for at least one year, insufficiently relieved despite optimal drug management, including at least two lines of biotherapies tested for at least 6 months, will be enrolled in this study. The duration of participation (treatment + follow-up) for each patient: 7 months.
