HEALTHY FEET
Your Feet And Arthritis
rthritis is not a single disease, it’s
a complex disease process that
may involve more than 100 dif-ferent
disorders, characterized by
inflammation of the cartilage and
lining of the body’s joints.
Since the foot has 33 joints which
can be afflicted, it’s no wonder that
there’s little escape from the pain
brought on by the tremendous weight-bearing
responsibility of the feet.
One form of arthritis which concen-trates
almost exclusively on the foot is
gout. It probably attacks a single big
toe joint most frequently because that
joint is subject to so much pressure in
walking. Whatever the reason, it’s gen-erally
considered the most painful form
of arthritis, and like other forms of the
disease, it appears to have some
heredity tendencies.
Podiatric physicians are often the first
medical practitioners to en counter
some of the complaints of arthritis.
Because of that they’re well-equipped
to do something about the feet, and
they frequently work with other spe-cialists
who treat arthritis.
Orthotic devices, shoe inserts which
help control foot functions that may be
contributing to the pain, can some-times
help. So can specially prescribed
shoes. Physical therapy might be indi-cated,
and pain can be relieved with
aspirin and other analgesics. Surgical
intervention is a last resort, but
replacement of damaged joints with
artificial joints is becoming a more
common procedure.
