If you have a severely inflamed joint, you could benefit from braces and splints to mobilize and support a painful joint. They also protect your joint and decrease your pain. A physical therapist or an occupational therapist could help find the right fitting device for you. If you have severe joint damage, mobility devices could improve your activities. This includes canes, walker and motorized mobility devices. Most cases of psoriatic arthritis are managed in outpatient clinics. In the rare instances you have severe symptoms, you may require hospitalizations, but that’s very rare.
