    Spondyloarthropathies


    Spondyloarthropathies are a group of arthritic diseases . Ankylosing spondylitis, Reiter's syndrome, and psoriatic arthritis are the most common arthropathies, with ankylosing spondylitis being the most prevalent—it affects one to two percent of the population. The causes of ankylosing spondylitis are unknown, though risk factors include male gender, age, Caucasian race, and family history. Like rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis is systemic and causes complications throughout the body, for example in the cardiac and pulmonary systems. Joints of the spine are primarily involved, with some unilateral involvement in other large joints. Inflammation occurs in other tissues, especially at ligamentous attachments. Initial symptoms are backache and stiffness, more so in the morning. The trunk and neck become symptomatic over time and the individual may also complain of weight loss, excessive fatigue, and fever.
    The joint pain and stiffness inherent with all types can be significantly reduced with regular exercise. Your doctor will identify not only what type of arthritis you have, but also issues related to your personal arthritis history, which will determine the type of program you pursue.
