Arthritis, Gout and Joint pain
Unfortunately Arthritis and Joint pain is something that many people face in their older years as foot deformities begin to develop on their feet. (Sometimes on the young too!) This can include but not limited to conditions such as:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Bunions, hammer toes, clawed digits etc.
- Lumps, bumps and joints that have changed shape
But it does not mean that there is no way of reducing pain. If the deformity is already occurring it is important to have a podiatry check up to determine what is the cause of the change of the foot structure and function and what can be done to reduce pressure on this area to alleviate pain.
If you have started to notice changes in your foot structure, shape or size, even if you don’t have pain it is important to have a check up to ensure your feet are healthy and functioning correctly. Prevent in this case is much easier than cure.
