Arthritis can be a debilitating disease that causes a lot of pain and frustration. Depending on the type that you have, the discomfort can take place in different parts of the body, including various areas of the foot.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease found in older people that affects the cartilage and is often located in the toe area. This may lead to further complications such as bunions or hammertoe. Rheumatoid arthritis can be found in people of any age and affects the joints in the balls of your feet. It loosens the ligaments and causes the bones and skin of the foot to rub against each other. This can result in ulcers, calluses, and many other complications.

Treatments vary according to the type of condition from which you are suffering. Since osteoarthritis affects the toes, it’s advised to wear shoes that have a wide toe box instead of pointy or high-heeled shoes that put a lot of pressure on that area. You can also wear a shoe insert that offers cushioning or support where needed. People with rheumatoid arthritis often will suffer from additional foot deformities, so picking the right shoes is crucial. Choose pairs that have plenty of space and are well ventilated so ulcerations can breathe. Other at-home remedies for both types of arthritis include pain relievers (oral or topical) prescribed by a doctor, physical therapy stretches, orthotics, and foot massages.
