Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA)

Psoriatic Arthritis is an inflammatory arthritis associated with psoriasis (red, scaly and itchy skin rash). The condition can affect joints (such as the knees or those in the hands and feet), as well as areas where tendons join to bone (such as the heel and lower back). It can cause pain, stiffness and swelling.
