Psoriatic Arthritis usually happens to people with psoriasis or red patches of skin topped with silvery scales. Most patients get psoriasis years before they are given a Psoriatic Arthritis diagnosis. Yet, for some people, joint issues start either concurrently with or before skin patches develop.
The primary symptoms and indicators of Psoriatic Arthritis include joint pain, stiffness, and Edema. These can range from minor to severe, affecting any area of the body, including your fingertips and spine. Disease flare-ups and remissions can occur in both Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis. Psoriatic arthritis has no known treatment option. Our goal of treatment is to manage symptoms and stop joint deterioration.
