What is Psoriatic Arthritis?

Psoriatic Arthritis is a chronic autoimmune condition that affects individuals with psoriasis, a skin disorder characterized by red, scaly patches. This form of arthritis causes joint inflammation, leading to pain, stiffness, and swelling. Psoriatic Arthritis can affect any joint in the body and often occurs alongside psoriasis, but it can also affect individuals without skin involvement.

Symptoms of Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriatic Arthritis is a complex condition known for its diverse range of symptoms. These symptoms can significantly impact your daily life and overall well-being. Understanding them is crucial for timely diagnosis and effective management.

  1. Joint Pain and Swelling: Psoriatic Arthritis causes pain, swelling, and tenderness in the joints, which can lead to joint damage over time.
  2. Skin and Nail Changes: Individuals with Psoriatic Arthritis often have psoriasis-related skin and nail changes, such as red, scaly skin patches and pitting or discolored nails.
  3. Stiffness: Joint stiffness, particularly in the morning or after periods of inactivity, is a hallmark symptom.
  4. Fatigue: Many people with Psoriatic Arthritis experience persistent fatigue, which can be debilitating.
  5. Enthesitis: Enthesitis, or inflammation of the areas where tendons and ligaments attach to bones, is common and can cause pain.

Treatment of Psoriatic Arthritis

Effectively managing Psoriatic Arthritis involves a multifaceted approach tailored to your unique needs. Our Psoriatic Arthritis treatment options encompass a range of strategies aimed at improving your comfort, mobility, and overall quality of life.

  3. Physical Therapy: Our highly skilled physical therapists work with you to develop tailored exercise programs that improve joint function, reduce pain, and enhance mobility, ensuring you get back to the activities you love.
  4. Joint Injections: For targeted relief, corticosteroid injections or joint aspiration can provide relief from pain and inflammation in specific joints affected by Psoriatic Arthritis.
