Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a complex and often frustrating type of inflammatory arthritis that impacts each patient differently. PsA is known to cause swelling, stiffness, redness, pain, and damage to the skin, nails, joints, and more. While it has the perception of being similar to rheumatoid arthritis but with skin involvement from psoriasis, in reality psoriatic arthritis is a completely distinct disease with its own risk factors, set of symptoms, and unique treatment options.
