In brief: Yes

The key is early treatment.
Whereas some patients may have mild psoriatic arthritis that responds to an anti-inflammatory medication or to methotrexate, many patients have more severe disease that causes debilitating pain, stiffness, and swelling. For these patients, excellent help is available in the form of humira, remicade, enbrel, or simponi (golimumab). These four rx can dramatically improve psoriasis.

In brief: Psoriatic ArthritIs

Tnf-alpha inhibitors your doctor may recommend tumor necrosis factor-alpha (tnf-alpha) inhibitors if you have severe psoriatic arthritis.
These drugs block the protein that causes inflammation in some types of arthritis and can improve signs and symptoms of psoriasis, as well. Drugs in this category include: adalimumab (humira) etanercept (enbrel) golimumab (simponi) infliximab (remicade).

Some patients also use oral medications such as methotrexate. Regardless, both of these answers show there are a lot of therapies that provide relief and joint protection!
