You don’t have to be old to have arthritis, especially in the feet and ankles. Arthritis is inflammation of the cartilage in the joints, which often comes from normal wear and tear. Considering that the foot has 33 joints that we use with every step, it’s rather common.
About 50 million adults in America – that’s more than one-fifth of us – have some type of arthritis. One in 10 adults actually has arthritis so bad that it interferes with their activity.
- Treating Gout
- Ankle Arthritis
- Arthritis in Children
- Arthritis in Feet
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Big Toe Arthritis (Hallux Limitus & Hallux Rigidus)
