Regardless of what form of arthritis is affecting the feet, arthritic feet have special needs. Arthritic feet can have bony issues including bunions and prominent bones on the soles of the feet, stiff joints and tight muscles. Treatment can include off loading pressure points, introducing padding, introducing exercises for stiff joints and tight muscles.
Footwear is also of great importance as certain shoe types are recommended for particular arthritic foot types.
For many, arthritis may not be isolated to the lower limb and hence where other areas of the body are affected, our podiatrists can help manage your general foot health where difficulties are experienced in accessing ones feet.
