Many people suffer from Arthritis. Arthritis means an inflammation of a joint. The older you become, the more likely you will suffer from arthritis. As time passes and you overuse your feet, the cartilage between the bones of your pivotal joints wears away. When this happens, your bones grind against each other and cause pain and swelling. While your bones continue to deteriorate and grind together, bony spurs develop at the joint and you are then restricted in the amount of movement you wish to have. Fortunately there are treatments for arthritis including anti-inflammatory medicine, cortisone injections, orthotics and surgery, if severe.
Each step you take may be painful and excruciating. We do not want our patients to ever reach this point, and that is why we offer Foot Arthritis treatment at Dr. Stuart Feldman’s practice!
