You must have seen someone around you suffering from joint pain and inflammation. Have you ever wondered what this disease is? It can be any form of arthritis but if a person is suffering from skin disease along with joint pain and inflammation then its surely psoriatic arthritis. Before jumping onto the treatment of psoriatic arthritis with Bioflex Pakistan laser therapy. Let’s dive in to find out what psoriatic arthritis is.
Psoriatic arthritis is a painful and embarrassing condition where you suffer from an itchy and scaly, red skin. It is a chronic condition where the person’s immune system is overactive. Psoriatic arthritis is commonly seen in patients who are suffering from psoriasis.
It is either mild or severe depending on the flare-ups. Psoriatic arthritis commonly involves the larger joints i.e. involving the lower extremities, sacroiliac, back joint, distal joints of the toes and fingers along with different joints of the body. Psoriatic arthritis is commonly seen in people aged between 30-50 years and can affect both men and women.
As psoriatic arthritis is a chronic disease, its symptoms keep on getting worse over some time. The common symptoms seen with psoriatic arthritis include swollen toes and fingers, painful joints especially the point where the ligaments and the tendons attach to the joint. Psoriatic arthritis can also result in lower back pain which is termed as spondylitis that results in inflammation of vertebral joints within the spine or joints between pelvis and spine.
The exact cause of psoriatic arthritis is still unknown but in 40% of the cases, it is seen that psoriatic arthritis occurs either due to hereditary involvement or certain infections like streptococcal infections which over activates the immune system. Psoriatic arthritis is commonly diagnosed with X-rays, MRI or CT scan which helps in evaluating joint damage.
Blood tests might also be advised for differentiating different forms of arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. In patients suffering from psoriatic arthritis, the blood tests conclude high levels of inflammatory markers, mild anemia but other results might appear normal. Skin biopsies are also occasionally done for identifying the confirmation of psoriasis.
TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS:
Treatment of psoriatic arthritis varies from person to person depending on the severity of pain, inflammation, swelling or stiffness.
The common treatment options for psoriatic arthritis include medicated creams, steroids, and oral medications which pose severe adverse effects over the body.
TREATMENT OF PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS WITH BIOFLEX PAKISTAN LASER THERAPY:
In today’s 21st century we have Bioflex Pakistan Laser Therapy which is also known as cold laser therapy or low-intensity laser therapy which aids in treating several medical conditions. For people who suffer from psoriatic arthritis, they can choose Bioflex laser therapy which is inexpensive and does not pose any severe effects over the body.
It is a non-toxic, non-invasive, safe and highly effective therapeutic option that aids in relieving the symptoms posed by psoriatic arthritis. The infrared light from the laser therapy penetrates the superficial skin layer and causes some alterations within the cells of the skin along with the residing immune cells.
Such changes within the skin reduce the formation of cytokines that lead to psoriasis. Bioflex laser therapy offers an anti-inflammatory effect within the body and regulates the formation of T cells which aids in the suppression of autoimmune reactions while also suppresses itching due to psoriatic arthritis.
The infrared light blocks the release of bradykinins and prostaglandins e-1at the cellular level. Laser therapy stimulates the production of cells and enhances the formation of fibroblasts.
At the cellular level, it activates the formation of ATP, stimulates the division of cells, and accelerates biosynthesis which helps in the formation of DNA, stimulates vasodilation, accelerates the activity of leukocytes, increases angiogenesis and decreases the levels of C-reactive protein.
LIVE SESSION BY BIOFLEX PAKISTAN LASER THERAPY FOR PSORIASIS AND PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS:
Bioflex laser therapy in Pakistan initiated a live session for the public awareness which was conducted by Dr. Momina Abbasi where she explained what psoriasis is, its symptoms like soreness, ridged or pitted nails, swollen joints, red/itchy/ scaly skin or eruptions. She further explained that it is a non-contagious disease that can initiate at any part of the body ranging from scalp, fingers, nails, joints, and others. She further says that this emotionally disturbing disease results in itchiness and is an over activation of the immune system.
The lifecycle of skin cells speeds up in this disease due to which they start dying within days. The immune system starts forming skin cells rapidly and eventually, it results in dilation of blood vessels, further activates the T-cells, enhances excess circulation and results in further flare-ups of the diseases.
The exact cause of this disease is still unknown as we mentioned earlier. It is an ongoing disease where the vicious cycle keeps on continuing and leads to further progression of the disease. Certain risk factors can enhance psoriatic arthritis like genetic, stressful situations, traumatic injuries, infectious diseases, environmental pollutants, certain medications which can further complicate the disease. She further explained the different types of psoriasis which are explained in the video.
The disease leads the patient to depression, stress, lowers down your confidence level, you are at the increased chance to suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, and others.
