What Is The Cause Of Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA)?

Psoriatic arthritis is an immune-related illness. PsA is believed to be a genetic disease that triggers the body’s immune system to attack healthy tissue, causing inflammation and damage in multiple areas of the body, including joints and skin.

Psoriatic arthritis affects about 30 percent of people with psoriasis (a common skin condition).

Psoriasis causes patches of red, scaly skin. Psoriatic arthritis is more common in people who have a family history of the disease.

What Are The Risk Factors?

There are two main risk factors, along with having psoriasis:

  • Age: Psoriatic arthritis typically occurs between the ages of 30 to 35.
  • A family history of psoriatic arthritis.

What Are The Symptoms Of Psoriatic Arthritis?

The symptoms of psoriatic arthritis can vary from person to person and change over time. Some people may experience only mild symptoms while others may have severe PsA.

Symptoms may include joint pain, swelling, stiffness, and tenderness of the joints. Psoriatic Arthritis can affect any part of your body including:

  • Fingers
  • Toes
  • Wrists
  • Elbows
  • Ankles
  • Knees

PsA may also cause fatigue, a low-grade fever, and changes in mood.

How Is Psoriatic Arthritis Diagnosed?

There is no definitive test for diagnosing psoriatic arthritis. A doctor will likely ask about your medical history and do a physical examination. He or she may also order tests such as:

  • Blood tests (to check for inflammation)
  • X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans to look at the affected joints and tendons.

Psoriatic arthritis is often misdiagnosed as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or gout because they share many of the same symptoms.

It is important to see a doctor who is familiar with PsA and can make an accurate diagnosis.

How Do We Help Psoriatic Arthritis

We use a combination of chiropractic, physical therapy, and other treatment modalities that are highly effective in Psoriatic Arthritis.

Chiropractic Care

A chiropractor will evaluate your spine, joints, tendons, and ligaments to determine if there is a misalignment of the vertebrae or injury to any of the components that make up the spine. Psa often affects areas such as the lower back, shoulder, and neck.

If there is misalignment or injury to these structures, a chiropractor will use a series of manual adjustments in an effort to restore alignment and improve mobility. Chiropractic treatment can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with PsA and improve mobility.

Physical Therapy Care

A physical therapist uses a variety of techniques to help reduce pain and inflammation associated with PsA, as well as improve strength and flexibility in joints that have been affected by PsA.

Physical therapy can include stretching, exercise therapy, massage therapy, and laser therapy.

Laser Therapy For Psoriatic Arthritis

We use a Class IV laser at Dublin Physical & Chiropractic. It is highly effective for reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation of arthritic joints, to allow freedom of movement and improved range of motion.

Laser therapy is also effective for skin conditions.

Laser therapy uses light therapy to increase cellular activity, speed up the recovery process, and promote cellular regeneration.
