Psoriatic Arthritis Treatment

Psoriatic Arthritis Treatment Begins With You

Studies have shown that patients who are well-informed and participate actively in their own care have less pain and make fewer visits to the doctor than do other patients with psoriatic arthritis. Patient education and arthritis self-management programs, as well as support groups, help people to become better-informed and to participate in their own care.
 
Self-management programs teach people about a number of things related to psoriatic arthritis, including treatment, exercise and relaxation approaches, communication between patients and healthcare providers, and problem solving. Research on these programs has shown that they help people:
 
  • Understand the disease
  • Reduce their pain while remaining active
  • Cope physically, emotionally, and mentally
  • Feel greater control over the disease and build a sense of confidence in their ability to function and lead full, active, and independent lives.
