There is never any reason why you should have to live with a lot of pain, swelling and discomfort in your feet and ankles due to some form of arthritis. Your foot is made up of a series of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles and once you start to have a breakdown in this area, there can be redness and discomfort that can start to keep you from your regular activities. Our team of professionals at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will be happy to discuss with you all of your options when it comes to foot and ankle arthritis treatment in Kirkland.
Have you undergone any sort of painful activities in your life that could have started to cause the discomfort that you are feeling now? While we go through your medical history at our offices, we will discuss with you any of the activities that you take part in on a regular basis that can be a culprit for ankle and foot injuries. For example, if you seem to have pain when you walk uphill, there could be arthritis present in the front portion of your ankle. If the discomfort is in the back when you go downhill, this rear joint may be where the problem lies.
Any discomfort that you go through while you walk on uneven ground can be a good indicator that there are issues with the subtalar area, which is the region just below your ankle joint. Any swelling or instability here can be a good indication that there are weakened ligaments.
