There are many forms of arthritis, but the broad definition is inflammation of a joint. As cartilage wears away or is damaged, the bones lose their protective cushion. This causes friction and rubbing, leading to inflammation, pain and stiffness in the joint. Because your feet and ankles bear weight and have many small bones and joints, arthritis is common in these areas.
- Wear and tear to cartilage over time
- Injury to the joint or cartilage
- Autoimmune disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis
- Joint pain that increases with motion, or after rest
- Joint swelling, warmth and redness
- Difficulty walking due to pain and stiffness
