Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that commonly affects the feet, particularly the joints of the toes and the midfoot. This condition occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of bones in the joints deteriorates over time, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.

Osteoarthritis in the feet can result from factors such as age, genetics, previous joint injuries, or overuse of the foot joints relating to poor foot biomechanics. The symptoms may vary from mild discomfort to severe pain, making it challenging for individuals to engage in their daily activities and maintain an active lifestyle.

Our experienced podiatrists specialise in diagnosing and managing osteoarthritis of the feet. We offer a range of treatment options tailored to your unique condition, including custom orthotics to provide support and alleviate pressure on affected joints and exercises to improve strength around the joints. In more advanced cases, injection therapy may be considered to address severe joint damage.

If you are experiencing foot pain or suspect you may have osteoarthritis, we encourage you to reach out to our podiatry team for a consultation. Early diagnosis and proper management can help you maintain optimal foot health, reduce pain, and improve your quality of life. Your foot health is our priority, and we are here to guide you toward a more comfortable and active future, free from the limitations of osteoarthritis.
