Osteoarthritis

 

Osteoarthritis - otherwise known as degenerative joint disease - is the most common type of arthritis. It usually occurs  in weight bearing joints of the hips, knees, and spine. However, it can easily affect any joint in the foot or ankle.

Most people that are 50 years or older have osteoarthritis to a varying degree. However, it has been diagnosed in individuals in their 20s and 30s, as well.

Symptoms often develop gradually and include: 

  • Joint aching and soreness.  
  • Pain after overuse or after long periods of inactivity.
  • Bony enlargements in the middle and end joints of the toes - which may or may not be painful.
  • Joint swelling and fluid accumulation.


An individual’s chances of developing osteoarthritis are based on several factors including:


Heredity
- People born with joint abnormalities are more likely to develop osteoarthritis. Similarly, those born with an abnormality of the spine - such as scoliosis - are more likely to develop osteoarthritis, as well.

Obesity
- Obesity increases the risk for osteoarthritis of the knee , hip and ankle.

Injury - Injuries can be linked to the development of osteoarthritis. For example, athletes who have foot/ankle related injuries may be at higher risk of developing osteoarthritis in that area.

Joint Overuse - Overuse of certain joints increases the risk of developing osteoarthritis.

If you’re suffering with any type of foot or ankle joint pain, a consultation is advisable to determine the diagnosis and available treatment options. .
