What Causes Psoriatic Arthritis in the Hands and How Can a PEMF Machine HELP?

What is Psoriatic Arthritis

Before getting into WHAT IS or HOW a PEMF machine can help with Psoriatic Arthritis, let’s understand what Psoriatic Arthritis is…

The following is a definition of Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) from the National Psoriasis Foundation’s website:

“Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic, inflammatory disease of the joints and where tendons and ligaments connect to bone. Like psoriasis, PsA is associated with related health conditions (comorbidities). Some develop PsA first or without ever developing or noticing psoriaisis.”

Psoriatic arthritis can cause of lot of pain, stiffness and achiness in the joints. NSAIDS, Antiinflammatory drugs and steroids, while they may cause some temporary relief of symptoms, can lead to health problems associated with long term use of those medications. Many sufferers of psoriatic arthritis find themselves looking for alternative help for their symptoms of pain, inflammation and discomfort.

What is a PEMF Machine?

In an episode of the Pain Education Podcast, we interviewed Paul Bando on what is a PEMF Machine and what are the benefits. Below are some highlights from the interview:

HIGHLIGHTS from the Interview

  • When the body is outside of the earth’s magnetic field, the electromagnetic current (or cell voltage) drops in the cells of the body causing pain, depression, arthritis and even blood disorders.
  • This phenomenon was witnessed when the first Russian Cosmonauts (Astronauts) when out into space for only 2 hours!
  • The PEMF raises the voltage (or electromagnetic current) in the body so that the body to counter imbalances
  • The PEMF stimulates the vagus nerve
  • When the vagus nerve is stimulated, it helps reduce our pain in body
  • The PEMF has been helpful at relieving inflammatory conditions in the body

More Symptoms of Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) can develop slowly, with mild symptoms, or it can develop quickly and severely. Some people may develop PsA in a joint after an injury, though it be related to genetics. Scientists estimate that at least 10 percent of the general population inherits one or more of the genes that create a predisposition to psoriasis.

Common symptoms of psoriatic arthritis:

  • Fatigue
  • Tenderness, tension, pain and swelling over tendons
  • Swollen fingers and toes that sometimes resemble sausages
  • Disfigured finger bones and joints (similar to rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Stiffness, pain, throbbing, swelling and tenderness in one or more joints
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Morning stiffness and tiredness
  • Nail changes, such as pitting or separation from the nail bed
  • Redness and pain of the eye (uveitis)
  • There is little connection between psoriasis severity and PsA severity. You could have few skin lesions but many joints affected by arthritis.

What Causes arthritis?

Here’s a little insight as to what causes arthritis provided by the National Institute of Health:

“Arthritis” literally means joint inflammation. Although joint inflammation is a symptom or sign rather than a specific diagnosis, the term arthritis is often used to refer to any disorder that affects the joints. Joints are places where two bones meet, such as in your spine, elbow or knee. There are different types of arthritis. In some diseases in which arthritis occurs, other organs, such as your eyes, heart, or skin, can also be affected. Fortunately, current treatments allow most people with arthritis to lead active and productive lives.
