The older you get, the greater the chance that you will suffer from osteoarthritis. Stiff ankle treatment is important for allowing you to continue your normal activities. You don’t have to undergo intensive surgery to reduce the symptoms of your arthritis. Instead you might try a custom-made orthotic to help relieve some of the pressure on your feet. You can also try using a cane or wearing special shoes. Physical therapy exercises and stretches can make a big difference in keeping your feet limber. Also, remember to keep your weight in a healthy range, so that you aren’t putting added pressure on already sensitive feet. Lastly, a doctor can prescribe different medications that can help with the pain, swelling, and inflammation.
