Our Chicago Foot Doctors Can Help With Your Foot or Ankle Arthritis

chicago foot doctors for foot ankle arthritisYour feet contain almost a quarter of all the bones in your body. That means there are many places where painful arthritis can strike. Our 5-star-rated podiatrists can help you alleviate or even eliminate the arthritic discomfort in your ankle or foot. In addition, if your foot or ankle has been injured by ongoing arthritis, we may be able to help correct the damage and get you back to a more active lifestyle.

What Is Arthritis?

There are numerous conditions that we refer to with the generic term “arthritis.” Typically, arthritis is marked by the swelling, stiffening, or limited range of motion in your joints. Arthritis can often be painful, and when it occurs in your feet or ankles, it can dramatically affect your ability to walk or perform even basic daily tasks.

How Do You Treat Arthritis in the Foot or Ankle?

chicago foot doctors for arthritis painThe kind of treatment that our Chicago area podiatrists recommend will depend on the type of arthritis you suffer from, as well as its location. Potential initial treatments may include one or some of the following:

  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Ice
  • Changes in your choice of shoes
  • Stretching exercises

For more advanced or prolonged arthritis pain, our doctors at Weil Foot & Ankle Care may suggest additional treatments, including:

  • Custom orthotics to relieve pressure on the painful joints
  • Corticosteroid injections to reduce inflammation
  • Night splints to help stretch your foot or ankle while you sleep
  • Physical therapy to help relieve pain and promote healing

We always consider surgery to be a last resort for arthritis treatment. First, we ensure that other options have been exhausted. However, in cases where prolonged arthritis has caused damage to your foot or ankle, surgery may be our recommendation.

Ultimately, the only way to know how you can reduce or eliminate your arthritis pain is to speak with one of our experienced podiatrists. During your initial exam, your doctor will examine your foot and ankle and speak with you about your symptoms and medical history. Your treatment recommendation will stem from your wishes and needs as much as from your doctor’s medical expertise and experience.
