Spondyloarthropathy is an umbrella term for a group of inflammatory conditions that are progressive and painful. These conditions affect the axial and peripheral skeletons, tendons and ligaments, as well as other organs such as the skin, gut and eyes. Spondyloarthropathies tend to affect younger people, usually developing before the age of 45. Because they have such wide-ranging effects, it is important to be able to distinguish these inflammatory conditions from each other and from other types of low back pain.


The aim of this course is to provide an overview of spondyloarthropathy and enhance your ability to distinguish between these conditions in clinical practice for a differential diagnosis.


This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz

Target audience

This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
