Enteropathic arthritis

Enteropathic arthritis develops in approximately 9% to 20% of people with inflammatory bowel disease such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. People who have enteropathic arthritis have episodes of sacroiliac joint pain (pelvic joints) and low back pain.


The symptoms of enteropathic arthritis include arthritis in several joints including the pelvic joints (sacroiliac joints), hips, knees, feet and shoulder, wrists and hands. Generally speaking, these episodes are worse when a patient has a flare of their inflammatory bowel disease.


Medications given by a medical practitioner is the main treatment for enteropathic arthritis. Controlling disease activity limits joint problems. Chiropractic and physiotherapy are also important for the ongoing rehabilitation of joint problems.
