Arthritis can be a main concern for foot pain, particularly if the patient is diabetic. Many types of arthritis can that affect the joints, muscles, or bones in the feet. This can result in pain, stiffness, and swelling. Some possible arthritis-related problems that affect the feet include:
A chronic condition characterized by the breakdown of the cartilage that cushions the ends of the bones where they meet to form joints. In the foot, osteoarthritis most commonly affects the big toe, but it can also affect the midfoot.
A chronic inflammatory disease, resulting in joint damage, pain, swelling, inflammation, loss of function and disability. Rheumatoid arthritis commonly affects the small joints of the feet, often causing symptoms in several joints of both feet. This can lead to the development of corns and bunions and the curling and stiffening of the toes into positions such as claw toe or hammer toe.
A form of arthritis causing excruciating pain and swelling in the big toe – often following a trauma, such as an illness or injury.
Also called septic arthritis, infectious arthritis refers to arthritis that is caused by an infection within the joint.
