Arthritic Foot & Ankle Care

With 33 joints and a remarkable daily weight load, it’s no wonder that feet are especially prone to arthritis. Arthritis is a potentially debilitating condition that affects almost 40 million Americans, most of them over age 50. The disease causes inflammation and swelling of the cartilage and lining of the joints, generally accompanied by an increase in the fluid in the joints. —an especially painful situation for the feet and ankles.

Flat Feet

Flat foot is a common structural condition characterized by low arches, collapsing ankles, fatigue and soreness. Flat foot can occur during childhood if the arches of the feet don’t develop, after an injury, or from the wear and tear of aging.

Fractures

Twenty-five percent (25%) of bones are located in your feet. This makes them quite susceptible to bone fractures. Certain activities or injuries can cause a fracture, or “break,” in one or more of these bones. Pain, swelling, redness, and even bruising are signs of a possible fracture. Fractures of the foot can be diagnosed by x-rays or other studies.

Plantar Fibromas

Plantar fibromas are benign tissue tumors or growths on the plantar, or bottom surface of the foot. Unlike plantar warts, which grow on the skin, these grow deep inside on a thick band of ligaments called the plantar fascia. The tumors make walking painful and put undue stress and pressure on different parts of the foot.
