Foot Arthritis

Treatment for foot arthritis aims to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and improve function. It may involve a combination of non-surgical and surgical approaches, depending on the severity and specific condition.


Foot arthritis refers to the inflammation and degeneration of the joints in the foot, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. It can affect any joint in the foot, including the ankle, midfoot, and toes. The most common types of arthritis that affect the foot are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Osteoarthritis: This is the most common form of arthritis and occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of bones wears down over time. Osteoarthritis can develop as a result of aging, overuse, previous injuries, or structural abnormalities in the foot. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, swelling, and difficulty walking or bearing weight on the affected foot.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the joints, causing inflammation. It commonly affects multiple joints, including those in the foot. Symptoms may include joint pain, swelling, stiffness, fatigue, and deformities of the foot. Rheumatoid arthritis can also cause systemic symptoms, such as fever and fatigue.
