Looking for a doctor to help with your arthritis foot condition in or around San Francisco, the Bay Area, or Sacramento? San Francisco Foot and Ankle Center can diagnose and treat your arthritis condition.
Arthritis typically manifests as pain or stiffness in a joint, often worse in the morning or with changes in weather. The pain can be worse with walking or with specific types of shoes. Your foot and ankle specialist will perform a full evaluation to determine the correct diagnosis and the appropriate treatment options.
Conservative treatment may include oral medications, orthotics, padding, corticosteroid injections, or physical therapy. If the pain is not relieved with the above measures, surgical intervention may be required. Surgery addresses the arthritic changes within the joint and any surrounding bony spurs that may develop over time.
