Artho means joint and itis means inflammation.
There are approximately 38 causes of arthritis and most of these conditions affect the human foot. The most common of these conditions is osteoarthritis. This is the simple wearing and tearing away of the cartilage of the joints. Age, excessive weight, ill-fitting shoes and trauma (injury) are the basic causes of osteoarthritis. Fortunately, this condition is very treatable.
The first step in the diagnosis of arthritis is a good complete history. The second step is an x-ray evaluation to view the bone structure of the foot. In more advanced cases of arthritis an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) or CT scan (computerized axial tomography) are extremely helpful. In more complicated cases of arthritis, blood tests are used to differentiate between one arthritis type and the next.
Gout, which is also classified under arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the two most crippling kinds of arthritis. In most cases, simple aches and pains of the feet are usually biomechanical, in that the bone structure of the feet are not being supported as well as they should be.
The first line of defense for painful feet is to get a well-supported shoe. The second line of defense is a custom made orthotic.
