Board-certified rheumatologists with Centegra Physician Care treat people who have arthritis and other diseases of the joints, muscles and bones.
Psoriatic arthritis is a form of arthritis that affects some people who have psoriasis. Psoriasis is a common condition that causes redness, irritation and flaky, silver-white patches on the skin.
Joint pain, stiffness and swelling are the main symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. They can affect any part of the body and often occur in the spine and large joints such as the shoulders and knees. Symptoms can range from mild with only intermittent symptoms to severe with consistent symptoms.
There are many treatments available that control the symptoms of psoriatic arthritis and prevent damage to the joints. Without treatment, this type of arthritis can disable even the most active individuals.
