5-Star Foot and Ankle Arthritis Treatment In The Kenosha Areas

5 star foot & ankle arthritis treatment in kenosha areaBecause your feet contain almost one fourth of all the bones in your body, there are many places where painful arthritis can strike. Our 5-star-rated podiatrists can help you reduce, and possibly even eliminate, the arthritic discomfort in your foot or ankle. Moreover, if you have an injury to your foot or ankle because of ongoing arthritis, we may be able to help correct the damage, so you can return to a more active lifestyle.

What Is Arthritis?

There are numerous types of conditions that we refer to as “arthritis.” In general, arthritis is indicated by the stiffening, swelling, or limited range of motion in your joints. Arthritis can often be painful, and when it strikes in your ankles or feet, it can dramatically affect your ability to walk or perform even basic daily tasks.

How Do You Treat Arthritis in the Foot or Ankle?

The type of treatment that our Kenosha podiatrists provide will depend on the type of arthritis you suffer from as well as its location. Initial treatments that we recommend could include the following:

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

For more advanced or prolonged arthritic pain, our doctors at Weil Foot & Ankle Care may recommend additional treatments, for example:

  • 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 after we’ve exhausted all other options. However, we may recommend surgery in cases where prolonged arthritis has damaged your foot or ankle.

Ultimately, the only way to know how your arthritis pain can best be treated is to visit our experienced podiatrist. During your initial exam, your doctor will examine your foot and ankle and talk with you about your symptoms and medical history. Your treatment recommendation will be developed according to your needs and your doctor’s medical recommendation.
