What is psoriasis arthritis?

Psoriasis is a common dermal disease that triggers the division of cells at a fast rate, the rate of cell division is triggered about 10 times faster than usual. In this condition the cells of the body rapidly build up on the skin surface and the skin develops into bumpy red patches having white scales. They can grow anywhere on the body and may cover large areas such as the scalp, elbows, feet and lower back. It is common for psoriasis arthritis patients to show signs of nail pitting.

It is not a contagious disease, however it is a hereditary condition and may be passed onto children with a low probability. It is a long lasting disorder that often develops and goes.

The treatment aims on stopping skin cells from further division.

Psoriasis arthritis may lead to the development of psoriatic arthritis, a condition that affects the joints in such a way that causes pain, stiffness and swelling similar to that of rheumatoid arthritis. Patients may suffer from psoriatic arthritis prior to or before being affected by psoriasis, however the patient is most commonly affected by psoriasis first and then later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. 

 

Psoriatic Arthritis types

The types of psoriasis arthritis are as followed:

Pustular Psoriasis

It causes reddish and scaly skin inside the tiny “pustules” on the hand palms and sole feet. It is a mild type of psoriasis. 

Guttate Psoriasis

It usually develops in childhood or teenage years. It leads to small red spots beside limbs. It might get triggered up by respiratory infections, tonsillitis etc. 

Inverse Psoriasis

It results in the formation of bright red and shiny lesions appearing in the folds of the skin like the areas of armpits, groin etc.

Erythrodermic Psoriasis

It causes fiery reddish skin and “shedding of scales” in the sheet. It gets triggered by sunburns and infections. It requires immediate treatment.

Causes of Psoriatic Arthritis

The actual cause of psoriasis is still unknown, but a part of the cause is due to your immune system attacking healthy skin cells by accident. The following factors are also considered triggers of psoriasis.

  • Immune dysfunction
  • Inflammation
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Surgical wounds
  • Emotional stress
  • Medications
  • Strep infections
  • Blood pressure

Psoriatic Arthritis symptoms

In addition to affecting the joints of the hands and wrists, psoriatic arthritis may affect the fingers, nails, and skin. Symptoms of the psoriasis are given ahead:

  • Plaque of Reddish skin
  • Fingernails disorders
  • Toenails disorders
  • Discoloration
  • Cracks
  • Silverish colored scales
  • Scales plaque
  • Crust on the scalp

Psoriatic Arthritis Treatment

There is no known cure for these symptoms, the aim is often to manage the associated symptoms such as joint pain and to reduce skill cell generation rate. Medication is often prescribed for joint pains, and is only prescribed for more severe cases of psoriasis however psoriasis medication has shown to potentially cause severe side effects. Laser therapy provides pain relief from joint pains and reduces associated psoriasis pains free from side effects.

Laser therapy has been widely researched and has been shown in literature to have immediate pain relief for psoriasis arthritis, as well as medium and long-term pain relief.

Laser therapy has been shown to increase cellular metabolism of the patient, which promotes the healing process of the targeted area. Laser therapy has also been shown to interact with the nerves of the targeted site in a way which reduces pain experienced. This interaction also releases endorphins which reduces the painful sensations at the site. These interactions have a combined effect that result in pain relief starting from minutes after the treatment to long-term pain relief.
