So what exactly is psoriatic arthritis? The Mayo Clinic defines psoriatic arthritis as a form of arthritis that affects some people who have psoriasis – which is a condition that can create red, flaky patches on the skin. The symptoms of this condition include joint pain, stiffness and swelling.
There is no definitive cause for psoriatic arthritis. However, studies show that genetics, the immune system, and your environment play major roles in the conditions development. Since one of the major causes of psoriatic arthritis is genetics, it means that anyone can be afflicted with this arthritis. However, it is most common between adults ages 30 to 50. Unfortunately, since there is no definitive cause, there is no definitive cure either. The symptoms of psoriatic arthritis are often treated with anti-inflammatory drugs, anti-rheumatics, or other immunosuppressants.
