Helping you manage your psoriatic arthritis


Pain can impact your sleep, and poor sleep can in turn make your pain worse. Poor sleep may stop you from doing the activities that you enjoy, and lack of activity can also reduce your fitness levels. Sleep quality is as important as sleep quantity.

Getting good sleep can improve your psoriatic arthritis symptoms and the impact it has on your life. Being comfortable in your bed is important for helping you sleep.
