Rheumatic conditions effect the lives of millions of Americans. From those who actually have the disease, to the families and friends who experience them firsthand, rheumatic conditions impact the lives of those they come into contact with.
While most of these conditions have no cures, treatments do exist which can lessen or even eliminate many of the most noticeable symptoms of rheumatic conditions. One of the many treatments which are offered by the Arthritis Institute of Michigan is an in-office infusion called Stelara. One of a number of biologic treatments, Stelara is used to treat psoriatic arthritis.
Originally developed for the treatment of plaque psoriasis, it was also approved by the FDA for treatment of psoriatic arthritis as well. Used to interfere with the triggers of the body’s inflammatory response, it targets proteins which are found in the blood of those with active psoriatic arthritis and helps reduce pain, swelling and stiffness. Like all treatments, results vary and this and other treatments are not right for everyone. This is why it is important to find a rheumatologist knowledgeable in the field to help you determine the right course of action for your condition.
Each day, scientists continue to look for ways to treat and even cure these conditions. Dr. Dowd and the Arthritis Institute of Michigan monitor these new discoveries and treatment options in order to help you improve your quality of life.
