Arthropathies

Doctor Jimenez Chiropractic Arthropathies Team. This is a general term that describes any disease of the joints. A group of arthropathic disorders can afflict the joints, such as sacroiliitis which causes inflammation in the sacroiliac joint.

There is Charcotโ€™s which is degeneration of a weight-bearing joint, and arthrogryposis which means, curving of joints. Doctors use arthropathy interchangeably with arthritis, which means joint inflammation.

Forms of arthropathy that are distinct from arthritis are Neuropathic arthropathyย that is nerve damage from diabetes or other nerve condition which results in slow damage to joints. In diabetic people, arthropathy usually affects the foot and ankle.

Hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy is where the bone ends of the ankles, knees, wrists, and elbows start to grow abnormally and painfully. Fingertips start to become rounded, called clubbing. This form usually happens to people with lung cancer.

Hemarthrosis is when blood leaks into a joint like the knee. This occurs after injuries or medical procedures and is a problem in people with hemophilia.
