Joint Care for Psoriatic Arthritis

The goal of joint care is prevent further trauma to the joints. This involves avoiding situations where heavy lifting is involved, where undue stress is applied, while maintaining as much flexibility as is possible through exercise:

  • It is advisable to avoid stressing the joints particularly if there is any evidence of inflammation. This involves heavy lifting, twisting, pulling, and pushing.
  • It is also advisable to maintain a general exercise program which allows the joint to maintain mobility and normal function. As each person experiences different degrees of arthritis in their joints, exercises need to customized for each patient depending on the degree of motion available. Contact your doctor for a specific regimen which is appropriate for your joints.
