NYU Langone specialists offer a variety of supportive services to help people with psoriatic arthritis manage this lifelong condition. They can help you avoid injury and cope with any pain and stress related to the condition.
People with psoriatic arthritis are vulnerable to joint and muscle injury. Physical therapists at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation can teach you exercises to increase strength and endurance. These exercises can also help preserve or restore range of motion.
Psoriatic arthritis causes pain and may affect your self-image, leading to stress, anxiety, and depression. NYU Langone counselors can teach you stress-reducing techniques and help you maintain your emotional wellbeing.
Some studies suggest that obesity may increase the risk of psoriatic arthritis. If you want to lose weight, registered dietitians and nutritionists at NYU Langone’s Weight Management Program can create a customized diet plan to help you reach and maintain a healthy weight.
Specialists at NYU Langone’s Psoriatic Arthritis Center are involved in clinical trials, which test promising new therapies for psoriatic arthritis. In a clinical trial, researchers evaluate new medications, medical devices, or other treatments in strict, scientifically controlled settings. These studies are required before new therapies can be approved by government agencies, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
NYU Langone doctors maintain an active research program dedicated to investigating new diagnostic and treatment strategies for people with psoriatic arthritis. They are also studying the causes of this condition.
Our experts have created a registry, so they can maintain contact with people who have psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and learn more about these conditions by observing these people over time.
