Foot Arthritis

Arthritis is the inflammation of joints. Your foot has over 30 joints, which can get affected with arthritis due to wear-and-tear, after an injury to the foot or as a result of an autoimmune response in your body. Foot arthritis can seriously affect your ability to walk due to pain, swelling and tenderness. Treatment methods can range from non-surgical treatments with medication, assistive devices and physical therapy to surgery.
