The spondyloarthropathies are a group of disorders that affect 0.5-1% of Americans. They are found equally in men and women and typically cause pain and stiffness involving the hands, feet, knees as well the lower back. There are 5 major subtypes of these conditions.

 Psoriatic Arthritis
 Inflammatory Bowel Disease related
 Reactive Arthritis
 Ankylosing spondylitis

The most well known of these is psoriatic arthritis which is associated with the skin condition psoriasis. 25-30% of patients with psoriasis can go on to develop this type of arthritis. This type of arthritis can also cause joint damage and disability if left untreated.

Common symptoms:
 Low back pain and stiffness
 Joint swelling and stiffness
 Pain in the heel/bottom of the feet
 Inflammation of the eye causing uveitis/iritis

 Control of inflammation with NSAIDs and prednisone
 Injectable medications such as Enbrel, Humira and Cimzia
 Topical steroid creams in the case of psoriatic arthritis
 Careful monitoring of x-rays to prevent worsening joint damage
