About Enthesitis

Enthesitis is Inflammation of the Entheses (points where ligaments and tendons connect to bones). Stresses or inflammatory diseases can cause inflammation or occasionally fibrosis and calcification of the entheses with the most common being the achilles tendon and the heel.

Enthesitis can be associated with Arthralgia, Arthritis, and/or Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
