What Is Arthritis?

Arthritis is identified by the swelling, stiffening, or limited range of motion at your joints. Arthritis is usually painful, and when it occurs in your feet or ankles, it can make walking or performing basic daily tasks difficult.

How Do You Treat Arthritis in the Foot or Ankle?

The kind of treatments that our Podiatrists will recommend depends largely on the location and type of arthritis you have. Potential initial treatments may include one or some of the following:

  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Ice
  • Shoe recommendations
  • Stretching exercises
  • Activity modification

For those with advanced arthritis, our doctors at Weil Foot & Ankle Care may suggest additional treatments, including:

  • Custom orthotics and custom braces to relieve pressure on the painful joints
  • Corticosteroid injections, which reduce inflammation
  • Wearing splints at night to stretch your foot or ankle while you sleep
  • Physical therapy to offer pain relief and promote healing
  • The use of OrthoBiologics for joint regeneration

Surgery is a last resort for advanced arthritis and usually involves fusion of the joint. The best way to learn how to reduce or eliminate your arthritis pain is to see one of our experienced Podiatrists for a consultation. Our specialists will recommend an individualized treatment plan based on your activity goals and get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
