Managing Psoriatic Arthritis
Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) is a type of arthritis that affects some people who have psoriasis — a condition that features red patches of skin topped with silvery scales. Most people develop psoriasis first and are later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, but the joint problems can sometimes begin before skin patches appear. Here at The Rehab Hub, we offer a comprehensive approach to manage PsA, utilising strategies such as rehabilitation, laser therapy, magnetotherapy and more.
Understanding Psoriatic Arthritis
Psoriatic Arthritis 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. Symptoms include joint pain, stiffness and swelling, swollen fingers and toes, foot pain, and lower back pain.
The Rehab Hub's Approach to Psoriatic Arthritis
At The Rehab Hub, we focus on treating the individual, not just the disease. Our comprehensive approach to managing Psoriatic Arthritis aims to reduce symptoms, improve joint function, and enhance overall well-being.
Rehabilitation is a crucial part of our PsA treatment plan. Our expert physiotherapists and podiatrists devise personalised programs to strengthen the muscles around your joints, increase flexibility, and promote optimal joint function. These programs also focus on maintaining balance and stability, helping you move more confidently.
We utilise advanced laser therapy, a non-invasive treatment that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. This therapy can effectively alleviate the pain and inflammation associated with PsA, promoting healing and symptom relief.
Another innovative treatment we offer for managing PsA is magnetotherapy. This therapy uses magnetic fields to stimulate the body's natural healing process. It's been shown to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and provide pain relief - all essential for managing PsA symptoms.
Besides these, we offer various other treatments tailored to your specific needs. These may include advice on lifestyle modifications, pain management strategies, assistive devices, and more.
