Spinal enthesopathy is a form of enthesopathy affecting the spine.
In medicine, an enthesopathy refers to a disorder of entheses (bone
attachments). If the condition is known to be inflammatory, it can
more precisely be called a enthesitis. Enthesopathies are disorders
of peripheral ligamentous or muscular attachments. Enthesis
(plural: entheses) is the point at which a tendon or ligament or
muscle inserts into bone, where the collagen fibers are mineralized
and integrated into bone tissue. The collagen to bone interface is
via Sharpey's fibers.
