Foot & Ankle Arthritis

What Is Foot & Ankle Arthritis?

Foot and ankle arthritis is a condition where the cartilage within the joints begins to deteriorate, causing pain, stiffness, and limited mobility in the affected area. It can develop due to aging, overuse, injury, or other medical conditions. Arthritis can affect various joints in the foot and ankle, leading to discomfort and difficulty with everyday activities.

Managing Foot & Ankle Arthritis

Foot and ankle arthritis can cause discomfort, stiffness, and reduced mobility, impacting daily activities. Management of this condition involves a multifaceted approach aimed at alleviating symptoms and enhancing joint function. Medications like pain relievers and anti-inflammatories, along with physical therapy, assistive devices, and orthotics, are often part of the treatment plan. Lifestyle adjustments, including weight management and appropriate footwear, can reduce stress on the affected joints. For advanced cases, surgical options may be considered. Seeking guidance from a healthcare professional ensures a tailored approach to manage foot and ankle arthritis effectively.
