With 26 bones in each foot, this can be a common condition! When this occurs, the cartilage on the surfaces of a joint can become damaged, and the space between the bones narrows, often resulting in a stiff and painful joint. Painful bone spurs can also develop. which can affect other weight bearing joints of the body, such as the knee and hip, arthritis in the feet tends to progress over time. Therefore, it is important to begin treatment as soon as possible for this condition to help decrease the rate at which arthritis becomes worse and more painful and problematic. We also have more treatment options available if we catch arthritis in its earlier stages than we do if it has already become more severe.
