Rheumatologist now available in Parsons & Oswego
Dr. Shashank B. Radadiya, MD
If you are a patient with joint pain or muscle pain that is not resolving or improving by your primary care physician then ask your primary care physician for a referral to a rheumatologist.
Understanding Psoriatic Arthritis
It's still not clear why some people develop psoriatic arthritis and others don't. About 40 percent of people with psoriatic arthritis have a family history, which points to a genetic risk. Outside factors—including infections, injuries, and smoking—may also play a role. About 85 percent of people who develop psoriatic arthritis have skin psoriasis first.
When you have psoriasis, your body's immune system revs up to battle the skin disease. But sometimes the cells that fight psoriasis turn on your joints instead. The resulting condition, called psoriatic arthritis, causes joint pain and redness, swelling, and trouble moving. Prompt treatment can prevent lasting joint damage
 Parsons & Oswego make a good central location. There is not a rheumatologist serving in these areas.”
