The proper course for foot and ankle arthritis treatment in Edmonds should address both the pain that is surfacing as well as the deformity within the joints. Pain will usually start to come on whenever the joint becomes injured, which will sometimes be due to normal wear and tear that comes with age. Our staff at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will be happy to go over your medical history and go through a full examination to determine what may be the cause of your discomfort so that you can get the treatment that you deserve.
There are numerous bones and joints within the human foot that are held together by ligaments, which are tough bands of tissue. Your muscles, ligaments and tendons will have to work together with your joints to control the motion of your foot. Smooth motion is what makes it possible for you to walk and go through with your daily activities. If you start to develop arthritis in your foot and ankle, you could end up with limited motion which will mean not walking or standing as well as you are used to.
You, the patient, is one of the most important parts of the treatment of arthritis of the foot and ankle. We will be able to work with you as you take an active role in your treatment so that you can enjoy your regular activities. The goal will be to reduce inflammation in the joints and prevent future damage from taking place, which could include anti-inflammatory medications, assistance devices, physical therapy and more.
