PsA can make it difficult to perform many everyday activities like showering, getting dressed, doing chores, getting in and out of a car, and running simple errands.
The impact and degree of difficulty vary from person to person. Fortunately, with medical treatment and regular physical activity, the degree and severity of symptoms caused by PsA can be managed.
PsA symptoms can suddenly flare and then go into remission for extended periods or can remain active for many years at a time. If left untreated, PsA can lead to persistent inflammation, progressive joint damage, pain, disability, and further restrictions to everyday activities.
