More about Arthritis.

Arthritis refers to the degradation or loss of cartilage within a joint. This cartilage is the main source of lubrication in pain free joints. When this cartilage is broken down or worn out, friction can be present leading to inflammation and pain. As arthritis progresses, patients may experience loss of motion in these joints. Arthritis is a progressive problem, meaning early diagnosis and treatment is extremely important in preventing worsening of the problem.

Symptoms of Arthritis

Symptoms of arthritis may be similar to many other issues with the foot and ankle. Some symptoms of arthritis may include:

• Pain when walking

• Swelling at the end of the day

• Cracks and pops within the joint

• Decrease in range of motion

Treating the Condition

Treatment for Arthritis can be complicated. In mild forms, rest and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories may be all that is necessary. In advanced cases, treatment may include immobilization, orthotics, injections, or surgery.
