moab podiatrist for foot arthritisMoab Podiatrist Shares An Overview Of Foot Arthritis

Inflammation of the small joints in your foot and ankle can be caused by a condition known as arthritis. It can cause pain and stiffness in any joint in your body, and commonly occurs as we grow older. More than 100 variations of arthritis have been identified, many of which affect your foot and make it difficult to walk and perform activities you enjoy. There are several different types of arthritis that can affect your feet.

What Are Some Signs of Arthritis In My Feet?

  • pain during or after regular physical activities
  • pain when standing
  • tenderness near the joints
  • swelling or inflammation after sitting, or when you wake up
  • trouble walking

What Are My Treatment Options For Arthritis In My Feet?

When you develop arthritis in your feet, there are many treatment options available to slow the progress of the disease and relieve symptoms. You can continue to live an active life, if you receive the proper treatment. Treatment options for arthritis in your feet include:

  • Changes To Your Lifestyle: You can help relieve some of the symptoms of arthritis by modifying some aspects of your lifestyle. Certain things that can help are losing weight (if you are overweight), limiting physical activities, and decreasing high-impact sports, that put pressure on your joints.
  • Physical Therapy:  An individualized therapy plan with exercises tailored to your needs can help with flexibility and range of motion, as well as strengthen your foot and ankle muscles.
  • Assistive devices: A cane, foot brace, ankle-free orthosis, or shoe inserts may help improve your ability to walk and get around. The medical advances may make mobility easier so you participate in your usual activities.
  • Surgery: In severe cases, your Moab podiatrist may recommend surgery as an option to alleviate the pain and lack of motion arthritis in your foot can cause.

What If These Things Don’t Work For The Arthritis In My Foot?

When over the counter and at home treatment options fail to alleviate your symptoms, there are podiatric surgery options that may help you with your arthritis in your foot. To find out what options are available to you. Contact our 5-star rated Moab, UT, podiatrist at 435.587.5054.
