PsA is a progressive disease

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a progressive disease. This means that without proper treatment, it will get worse over time and may cause permanent joint damage that can be disabling. This damage starts early, usually within the first year after diagnosis.

Luckily, early diagnosis and appropriate early treatment can help slow down the progression of the disease and associated disability. Take control of your disease by talking to your doctor about building your treatment plan to help you stay healthy and productive over the long term.
