In medicine, spondylopathies is a general term for disorders of the vertebrae. When involving inflammation, it can be called spondylitis. In contrast, a spondyloarthropathy is a condition involving the vertebral joints, but many conditions involve both spondylopathy and spondyloarthropathy.

Examples include ankylosing spondylitis and spondylosis.
