Ankle & Foot Doctor Near You
While standing, walking, or running, your foot and ankle provide you the support, shock absorption, balance, and other functions that you need for motion. There are over 100 types of arthritis, many of these affect the foot and ankle. All types can make it difficult to walk and perform activities you enjoy. Ankle arthritis is usually caused by osteoarthritis. This is where the cartilage covering the ends of your bones gradually roughens and becomes thin, and the bone underneath thickens. It can also be caused by damage from other rheumatic conditions, for example, if you have rheumatoid arthritis, or if you’ve had a previous injury to the area. This leads to pain, swelling and occasional deformity of the joint. You may need ankle or foot surgery if your symptoms are severe.
