In order to properly diagnose the condition that you are experiencing as arthritis, our staff at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will make sure that we put you through a full examination. At the same appointment, we will take a medical history to ask you about any previous infections or injuries that you have had. From there, we will be able to help you by coming up with the best foot and ankle arthritis treatment in Redmond to give you a good bit of relief.
In order to get a proper diagnosis of the full scope of the condition that you are dealing with, we may need to take images of your ankle using multiple angles as you are standing. This will help to find out how your alignment is in your ankles and your feet and whether or not there is any narrowing in the spacing of your joints. It may also be necessary for us to evaluate the manner in which you walk so that we can see what your stride length is like, the speed that you are able to move and any abnormalities that should be addressed.
If it is determined that you have arthritis of the ankle and the foot, we may suggest that you rest your foot to help cut back on some of the pain. If you are someone who enjoys regular exercise, we may suggest that you go for more low impact options such as cycling or swimming that can help to protect the foot and ankle.
