Osteoathritis is also known as degenerative or “wear and tear” arthritis, is a very common condition, especially in ageing feet. Our feet are made up of 28 bones separated by cartilage. As the cartilage in between the bones starts to wear away over the years people may experience symptoms such as pain, stiffness and swelling. This may sometimes cause difficulty when walking. Our Podiatrists will assess your feet and may even organise for an X-ray to confirm which areas are affected by the osteoarthritis. We may also prescribe you a pair of custom-made orthotics to provide your feet with support and cushioning to assist in treating the symptoms caused by osteoarthritis.
