Foot Arthritis 

If you are experiencing foot pain, it may be because you have foot arthritis. You should visit our podiatry practice, Henry Slomowitz DPM, so that our expert podiatrist, Dr. Henry Slomowitz, can correctly determine if you have foot osteoarthritis in Paterson NJ.

When a patient has arthritis, it means that they have an inflammation of the cartilage and lining of the joints. There is also generally an increase in fluids in the joint. Arthritis is an extremely painful disease which affects many people in the United States. Sometimes arthritis can be hereditary. The likelihood of developing arthritis does increase with age, however, people of all ages can be victims of arthritis. If you are over 50, you are particularly prone to developing arthritis. The feet are actually one of the areas of your body that are most susceptible to developing arthritis. This is because there are 33 joints in the foot that can be affected by the disease. Additionally, since the feet are always weight-bearing, pain from this type of arthritis can be considerable. When a patient has arthritic feet, it can cause them to lose their mobility and independence. The good news is that with early diagnosis and proper treatments, foot damage from arthritis can be limited or greatly slowed down. Signs that you may have arthritis in your feet and ankle include: stiffness in these areas in the morning; limitation of joint movement; recurring pain or tenderness in a joint; redness or warmth of a joint; rashes and growths of the skin at the joint; or swelling in one or more joints. Two types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis in Paterson NJ is caused by deterioration of cartilage and bone spurs. Rheumatoid arthritis frequently affects both ankles and toes. Treatment for arthritis of the feet can include: physical therapy; exercise; anti-inflammatory medicines; steroid injections; or foot orthotics.
