Foot Pain - Is It Arthritis or Another Condition?

By November 29, 2012

Follow me on:

Let's face it. Our feet take a beating. They carry us everywhere we go. Consequently, foot pain is not an uncommon complaint. Typically, with the onset of pain, people tend to suspect an injury. Or, if you have arthritis, you may suspect that your foot pain is related to your known condition. There are many possible causes of foot pain and it's important to distinguish between them.

If the source of your foot pain turns out to be a common foot condition, such as bunions or hammertoes, it's important to properly treat the condition. Protecting your joints, especially weightbearing joints, is an important aspect of managing arthritis. Learn more in Foot Pain - What You Should Know.
