Psoriatic arthritis is a type of inflammatory arthritis that is commonly seen these days. As its name suggests, it is a skin problem where inflammation of the skin, whose cause is unknown. We all know that it is a problem of inflammatory reaction, the reason is difficult to discover. When this skin disease spreads and psoriasis spreads. develops or becomes very prominent, then in some people can affect even the joints. That's why it's called psoriatic arthritis. So, to treat psoriatic arthritis is not very early. Then we have to treat the skin and the joint. Many times what happens is that it even has an autoimmune factor in some people, in the sense that our own immune system is acting against it. Then, we must take into account this factor also when treating psoriatic arthritis. Then acupuncture can be of some help, I will not say it will be of great help. It will certainly be of some help in controlling the pain of psoriatic arthritis. Even to a certain point I have treated certain cases of psoriasis in which acupuncture has helped to heal psoriasis itself and the symptoms of itching, joint pain and mobility are much smaller, unable to walk. Those conditions and all can be helped. Acupuncture can be of great help in the treatment of psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis. So, how can that happen? When we insert needles into specific areas or specific accupoints, it can help reduce inflammation. Psoriasis or psoriasis is nothing more than an inflammatory disease. Then acupuncture will help reduce inflammation. The inflammatory chemicals will be reduced in the blood and, obviously, there is a better blood flow in the local area, which will eliminate the inflammatory chemicals so it will help reduce the inflammatory arthritis that is psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, both. It can be very helpful in psoriatic arthritis.
