Rheumatoid Arthritis and its effect on your Feet
Is an autoimmune condition which causes inflammation in the joints of the hands and feet.
In the feet this may lead to:
- Joint pain and reduced range of motion
- Shifting of the digits
- Overall changes in the foot structure
- Contraction of tendons
- Rheumatoid nodules
- Callous formation
Within podiatry, the goal of treatment is to decrease pain, preserve joint quality and range of motion.
We can do that by:
- Exercises and stretches
- Joint mobilisation
- Taping and/or paddings
- Footwear recommendations
- THOR Laser
- Referrals to other allied health practitioners such as physiotherapists.
