Causes of Arthritis

Arthritis in your foot or ankle impedes your mobility, so it’s important to seek help if you suffer from it. While there are many different causes of arthritis – the most common ones for feet and ankles are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative arthritis and degenerative joint disease. Whatever you choose to call it, if you suffer from osteoarthritis in your feet, ankles or other areas, you are not alone. Approximately 27 million Americans live with osteoarthritis every day.
This chronic condition causes the cartilage in your joints to break down, causing pain and inhibiting a joint’s ability to move. The most common part of the foot to be afflicted by this condition is the big toe.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

An autoimmune disease, rheumatoid arthritis causes your body to mistakenly attack your joints in the same way it would fight off an infection. This causes inflammation in your joints that inhibit your mobility. Left untreated, the inflammation can eventually cause the cartilage in your joints to break down, causing significant pain and further restraining your mobility.

Rheumatoid arthritis afflicts approximately 1.5 million Americans and can affect more than your joints, so it is important that you seek treatment right away if you believe you suffer from this condition.

Posttraumatic Arthritis in Ankles

If your ankle incurred an injury in the past, that injury can cause the cartilage in your joints to erode. When this happens, the condition is called posttraumatic arthritis. This form of arthritis acts similarly to osteoarthritis.

Treating Arthritis in the Foot or Ankle

There are a variety of treatments available for foot or ankle arthritis. Our podiatrist will recommend the best options for you based on your specific case, but potential initial treatments may include one or some of the following:

  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Ice
  • Shoe recommendations
  • Stretching exercises
  • Custom orthotics to relieve pressure on the painful joints
  • Corticosteroid injections, which reduce inflammation
  • Wearing splints at night to stretch your foot or ankle while you sleep
  • Physical therapy to offer pain relief and promote healing

Surgery is always considered as a last-resort treatment for arthritis. If all other options have been ineffective, surgery may be recommended for cases where prolonged arthritis has caused damage to your foot or ankle.
