Ankle Arthritis Symptoms and Treatment

May is National Arthritis Awareness Month, and of the more than 100 forms of this painful condition, many can affect the ankle. In fact, almost half of people in their 60s and 70s have arthritis of the foot and/or ankle, but not all of them have symptoms. Unfortunately, arthritis cannot be cured, but it can be managed with a range of treatment options specifically designed to relieve symptoms and slow progression.

URGENT CARE OFFICE VISITS VS. THE ER

Often it can be challenging to know whether your ankle or foot injury requires a visit to the emergency room or if you can be treated in an orthopedic specialist’s office.
