Have you suffered from some sort of an injury to your foot or ankle in the past? If so and you are starting to experience discomfort, the chances are good that you are suffering from post traumatic arthritis of your foot and ankle. This arthritis can be a delayed reaction to a dislocation, sprain or fracture. A major sprain can cause damage to your cartilage that will then lead to instability of your joint and a number of degenerative changes. Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will be happy to go over all of the options that you have for professional foot and ankle arthritis treatment in Bellevue.
If there is damage to your foot and ankle, the evidence will usually show up on your x-rays within a couple of years of the injury that you had. However, there can be many years that can pass until you start to notice any severe pain or discomfort.
When it seems as though rheumatoid arthritis may be what is causing your pain, we may also ask about pain that is present in any of your other joints. Any sort of additional discomfort could mean that you have systemic inflammation that should be addressed. It may be necessary during your examination for us to stand barefoot so that we can check the alignment of your legs.
Call (425)482-6663 today to talk with our staff at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic about your options in foot and ankle arthritis treatment in Bellevue. No matter what the cause may be of the arthritis pain that you are feeling in your feet or your ankles, we will be happy to work with you on a detailed treatment plan to get you back on your feet again.
