PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS IS A SERIOUS BUT ACUTE FORM OF ARTHRITIS THAT AFFECTS AS MANY AS 30% OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE PSORIASIS. BELIEVED TO BE DUE TO AN OVERACTIVE IMMUNE SYSTEM, PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS CAN CAUSE PAINFUL INFLAMMATION, STIFFNESS, AND SWELLING IN THE JOINTS.
CONDITIONS TREATED: PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS
Our psoriatic arthritis remedies include biologics such as CIMZIA and REMICADE, which are administered intravenously at each of our many locations.
Psoriatic arthritis is considered a rare disease — affecting fewer than 1 in 2,000 people. IT CAN AFFECT ANY PART OF YOUR BODY, INCLUDING YOUR FINGERTIPS AND SPINE, AND CAN RANGE FROM RELATIVELY MILD TO SEVERE.
In both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, disease flares may alternate with periods of remission. Metro Infusion Center’s treatments focus on controlling symptoms and preventing further damage to joints. We have worked with dozens of psoriatic arthritis patients and are familiar with the symptoms and issues.
Since no cure for psoriatic arthritis exists, we work together with you and your doctor to design a treatment plan to reduce your pain and promote your optimum health.
