What to expect from your treatment

Early diagnosis and treatment can help get your psoriatic arthritis (PsA) under control so you can return to normal living.

Goals of PsA therapy include:

  • relieving symptoms
  • slowing the radiographic progression of the disease
  • slowing down the rate of joint damage and disability
  • improving quality of life and the ability to do daily activities

If you aren't sure whether you are meeting these goals, speak to your doctor about building a treatment plan with a targeted approach to treatment to help you get your life back and take control of your disease.

It's very important to follow your treatment plan exactly as recommended by your doctor. Otherwise, your treatment plan will not work as well as it should, which may increase your risk for disabling effects of psoriatic arthritis (PsA).
