Arthritis is a condition that leads to swelling and inflammation of the cartilage as well as the lining of the joints. When it happens in your feet and ankles, you could end up developing a lot of stiffness and discomfort that can make it difficult to go about your daily activities.
Because arthritis is a condition that can impact the structure as well as the function of your feet, it is a good idea to see a professional so that you can learn more about the cause as well as any treatment options that you have. Some of the symptoms that you may notice will usually include:
- Limited range of motion
- Swelling in one or multiple joints
- Pain or tenderness that is recurring in the joints
- Stiffness early in the morning
- Changes in the skin, to include growths and/or rash
- Heat or redness of the joint
The type of treatment that will work best for you will depend upon the diagnosis. Each patient can be different and we will work with you to make sure that you have a full workup to determine the best course of treatment to hopefully keep you on your feet and enjoying an active lifestyle for as long as possible.
