In today's program, Dr. Reminga talks about the aches and pains of arthritis in the feet and ankles. If you're older than 60, you may find yourself saying those words often... OH, My Aching Arthritis! According to the Arthritis Foundation, close to half of people in their sixties and seventies suffer from arthritis foot pain. The facts are that the damage starts even sooner. In our forties, the feet begin to show wear and tear. Arthritis more commonly attacks joints in the knees, hands, hands, and hips. However, it can occur in any part of the body where joints exist... including the feet. When cartilage wears away between the bones, tissues may become inflamed and painful.

Arthritis in the foot most often attacks the big toe, however, other toes may be affected as well. Clues may be... past injuries or traumas, such as a broken or sprained toe, which may cause arthritis to settle in at some point down the road. However, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic, traumatic arthritis, and gout may also be to blame. Dr. Reminga says that arthritis is a general term. He talks about the types and causes of this painful condition. What are the clues that point to arthritis in the feet?
