Low back spondyloarthropathy

Spondyloarthropathies are a group of diseases that affect joints. When these diseases affect children they are called juvenile spondyloarthropathies. Spondyloarthropathies include ankylosing spondylitis, Reiter’s syndrome (reactive arthritis), psoriatic arthritis and enteropathic arthritis.


Symptoms differ for each type of spondyloarthropathy and may include low back pain and sacroiliac (pelvic) pain. Most affect the areas where tendons attach to bones called the enthesis (enthesitis when it is inflamed). Persistent morning stiffness (extending into the day) in the low back and spine is common.


Spondyloarthropathies require medical treatment to treat the underlying cause and manage symptoms. Chiropractic and physiotherapy are important to preserve spine mobility and mechanical qualities.
