Your Provider will consider many factors when determining the best treatment for you. Symptoms, age, overall health, health history, and the severity of your condition will all play a part in choosing the best treatment.
With psoriatic arthritis, the skin condition and joint inflammation may require treatment based on your unique case.
- NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines) to ease symptoms.
- Corticosteroids for inflammation
- Immunosuppressive medications such as methotrexate may be used if NSAIDs do not work.
- Biologic medicines can significantly assist pain management, reducing inflammation and overall quality of life. Your AARA provider may recommend one of these treatments; infusion drugs can be administered in our in-office infusion suites.
- Physical and occupational therapies can assist in easing pain and making everyday tasks easier.
Lifestyle modifications may help manage your disease, such as maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, smoking cessation, limiting alcohol use, and avoiding overtaxing yourself in everyday activities.
