Arthritis Causing Foot Pain

Do you have arthritis in one or a number of your joints? Have you been told that the only thing can be done for the pain with your arthritis is to take medication?

Read on and find out about how we treat arthritis The two main types of arthritis we see at the Active Foot Clinic are:

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

We regularly assess and treat both of these conditions to help our patients keep moving and active.  Treatment is important and treatment decisions and options vary depending upon the stage of the arthritis and the joint which is affected.

We apply the concept of 'move it or lose it' to affected joints with arthritis.

We can help your joints to move better, smoothing out the cartilage surface, increasing the life of the joint and reducing the pain in the joint.

How? We design orthotics, raises, insoles or modify footwear with the aim that you can lead a more active lifestyle with less pain.  

Or if the joint has very advanced arthritis we can reduce movement in the joint, therefore reducing the inflammation and pain.

We can also refer for X-rays and surgical opinions if indicated. So if you think that you have arthritis or pain in a joint, call us for an assessment today. Our podiatrists at the Active Foot Clinic have expertise in assessing and treating arthritis and all other conditions of the foot affecting the joints.
