May is National Arthritis Awareness Month

Arthritis is an inflammation and swelling of the cartilage and lining of the joints, generally accompanied by an increase in the fluid in the joints. It is a disabling and occasionally crippling disease afflicting almost 50 million Americans.

The podiatrists and staff of Ryan Foot & Ankle Clinic would like you to know that there is usually no need to endure years of painful ambulation because of arthritic feet. Most conditions can be diagnosed and treated either conservatively or surgically by our team.

Symptoms of arthritis in the foot and ankle include:

  • Early morning stiffness.
  • Limitation in motion of joint.
  • Recurring pain or tenderness in any joint.
  • Redness or heat in a joint.
  • Skin changes, including rashes and growths.
  • Swelling in one or more joints.

If you are experiencing foot pain, take time to schedule an exam today. Early detection and treatment of problems help keep you on your feet and active.
