Arthritis and Your Feet

Foot pain can be the result of many different conditions. Arthritis is one of the most prevalent—it is said that fifty million Americans suffer from the disease. While it often affects the aging, rheumatoid arthritis can occur at any age. Lucille Ball lived with this form that attacks the body’s immune system.

Do your joints ache and creak? Are you experiencing stiffness? Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, and is known as a disease of “wear and tear.” Over time, the joints are exposed to stress and pressure that causes damage to cartilage in the knees and ankles. Weight management is one of the best ways to prevent worsening pain.

You’ve probably heard someone make a rain prediction based on body aches. Many people find that they experience arthritic pain years after an injury. Proper, immediate treatment of foot and ankle traumas can help to decrease the likelihood of suffering later.

Conservative and surgical treatments are available to address the pain of this disease. Orthotics, strengthening exercises, and anti-inflammatory medicines can help. Your plan of action will be dependent on the type of arthritis diagnosed and its severity. Seeking treatment at the first signs of the disease can help to prevent further deterioration.

Is arthritis pain keeping you from the activities that you enjoy? Have you changed your daily routine to accommodate for stiffness and joint pain? Dr. Marco Vargas and his staff understand the impact that arthritis can have on your quality of life. Don’t waste another day—call one of our convenient Texas locations today, or schedule an appointment online.
