WHAT IS ARTHRITIS?
Arthritis literally means joint inflammation. Although joint inflammation is a symptom rather than a specific diagnosis, the term arthritis is often used to refer to any disorder that affects the joints, typically causing pain, redness, and inflammation.
Symptoms of foot and ankle arthritis often include tenderness when you touch the affected joint and pain when you move it. It can also cause swelling and varying degrees of discomfort when walking, or putting weight on it.
There are different types of arthritis, with the most common being osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Risk Factors for Arthritis
- Genetic: Some types of arthritis are hereditary, so you may be more prone to develop arthritis if a family member has it.
- Age: The risk increases and the symptoms worsen with age.
- Gender: Women develop rheumatoid arthritis more than men, while men tend to develop gout, another type of arthritis, more than women.
- Previous Joint Injury: People who have injured a joint are more likely to eventually develop arthritis in that joint.
- Weight: Excess pounds puts stress on joints, especially on knees, hips and spine, and thus tend to have an increased risk of developing arthritis.

Shoes for Painful, Swollen feet?
One of the common questions that we are often asked is…what is the best type of shoe for painful and swollen feet? Typically, feet tend to swell more as the day progresses so it is essential that the shoes have adjustability. Laces can be adjusted, however most people don’t want the hassle of tying and re-trying shoes several times a day. By far the easiest option is to purchase shoes with adjustable touch closure straps, typically referred to as "Velcro Straps".
