Thanks to state-of-the-art technology and the extensive experience of our foot specialist in Dallas, TX, we offer 5-star-rated arthritis treatment. There are many different causes of arthritis – the most common for feet are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Treatment for both types is available at Dallas Podiatry Works.
Osteoarthritis goes by a few different names, including degenerative joint disease and degenerative arthritis. Whatever you choose to call it, you are not alone if you suffer from osteoarthritis in your feet and other areas. Approximately 27 million Americans live with osteoarthritis every day. This chronic condition causes the cartilage in your joints to break down, causing pain and inhibiting a joint’s ability to move. The most common part of the foot to be afflicted by this condition is the big toe.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes your body to mistakenly attack your joints in the same way it would fight off an infection. This causes inflammation in your joints that inhibits their mobility. If not treated, the inflammation can eventually cause the cartilage in your joints to break down, causing significant pain and further inhibiting your mobility. Rheumatoid arthritis, which afflicts approximately 1.5 million Americans, can affect more than your joints, and it is important that you seek treatment right away if you believe you suffer from this condition.
