Arthritis in the Foot and Ankle
Did you know that there are 26 bones and 30 joints in your foot? All of these are held together by muscles, tendons and ligaments, which work together to control foot and ankle motion. Arthritis limits this motion, often causing severe pain and impeding your ability to walk comfortably.
Arthritis comes in many forms, but the most common is osteoarthritis. It is common as you age, resulting from wear and tear to joint cartilage, the soft tissue between joints.
Signs of Arthritis in the Foot or Ankle
Some of the more obvious signs of osteoarthritis in your foot and ankle include:
- Can’t go up or down the stairs
- Ankles lock up with prolonged sitting, standing, or sleeping
- Difficulty getting out of the car
- Difficulty walking, dancing or hiking with loved ones
- Can no longer play golf, tennis or your favorite hobby
- Swollen, stiff and sore ankles
