August 2014 is Psoriasis Awareness month, and a good time to consider how Americans suffering from Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis who are unable to work may be considered in applying for social security disability benefits. Most of us are familiar with current TV ads for a Psoriatic Arthritis ‘biologic’ medication featuring well-known professional golfer Phil Michelson, who has Psoriatic Arthritis. Biologics are genetically-engineered medications made from proteins that treat psoriatic arthritis by blocking inflammation triggers within the body. Biologics tend to have less of an overall impact on the immune system than some other psoriatic arthritis treatments (such as methotrexate), resulting in less side effects. Examples of biologics include Remicade, Enbrel, and Humra.
