PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS

In some people who suffer from psoriasis (a disease that causes red patches of skin topped with silvery scales) they can also suffer from a form of arthritis known as psoriatic arthritis. Most people will have  psoriasis for many years before developing psoriatic arthritis. But in some cases, joint problems will develop before skin patches appear or at the same time.

Joint pain, stiffness and swelling are the main signs and symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. They can affect any part of the body, even in the fingertips and spine, and range from relatively mild to severe symptoms. In both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, symptoms may go through periods of calm before flaring up again.

There is no known cure for psoriatic arthritis, and treatment is aimed at controlling the symptoms and protecting joint health. Without treatment, psoriatic arthritis can be disabling.

 

Physical Therapy

Physical therapists diagnose and treat patients with medical problems or injuries that limit their ability to take part in their daily lives. Patients will usually see a physical therapist after a referral by their primary physician. Physical therapists work with patients who have experienced an injury or disease that has affected their movement and range of motion.

At Nextgen Pain & Injury Clinic, our team of licensed physical therapists and rehabilitation experts will focus on your total health and wellness. Regardless of the cause or source of your pain, we will develop a treatment plan with your unique issues in mind.

Our treatment philosophy emphasizes evidence-based manual and therapeutic exercise techniques that are tailored toward efficiently returning patients, athletes, and employees to their pre-injury status. We treat orthopedic and sports injuries, provide spinal rehabilitation, post-surgical rehabilitation, and industrial rehabilitation. Personalized physical therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions.

  • Chronic and acute medical problems
  • Knee pain
  • Back pain
  • Leg Pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Chronic medical problems
  • Neurological conditions such as spinal cord injuries

Between the bones and soft tissues all throughout the human body, small fluid-filled sacs known as “Bursae” cushion impacts and help your body parts glide smoothly when moving.

If these Bursae suffer from inflammation or irritation, physicians call this condition “Bursitis”.

The subacromial bursae in the shoulder help lubricate the rotator cuff, and commonly suffer from this condition. Patients suffering from subacromial bursitis may feel stiffness and pain in the shoulder, as well as swelling, redness, soreness, which can cause difficulty sleeping.

Advanced Bursitis can completely immobilize the shoulder, leading to a condition known as “frozen shoulder.”

Our mission is to help patients to return to work, improve their quality of life, reduce dependence on medication and healthcare providers, and avoid persistent injuries.
