The treatment we provide for arthritis

We have various specialist treatments that will help relieve symptoms and control the development of arthritis at Podiatryofsa. Our committed team of podiatrists uses scientific methods and inventive approaches to deal with diverse forms of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Highlighted below are some key services we offer:

Our custom-made orthotic devices provide arch support and foot realignment, relieving pressure from arthritic joints. These personalized orthotics take your specific foot structure into account and come in a way suitable for your walking style so that they can be comfortable while enhancing better body movements.

When managing pain in the feet due to arthritis, the right shoes are vital. Our professionals offer individualized guidance on choosing appropriate footwear with enough cushioning and space for an orthotic insert. Moreover, we suggest footwear brands specializing in comfortability and supportiveness.

Physical therapists work with our podiatrists to create personalized fitness programs that can increase joint mobility, strength, and range of motion. Physical therapy can reduce pain, improve movement, and prevent more degeneration in arthritic joints.

Joint mobilization or manipulation are soft manual techniques to restrict stiffness and improve joint capacity. These tactile treatments boost blood flow, lessen swelling, and ease the pain associated with arthritis.

Corticosteroid injections may be recommended in cases involving severe pain and inflammation to give short-term relief. Such injections contain potent anti-inflammatory medications that go straight to the affected surface, bringing fast relief from pain and improved mobility.

PRP treatment entails the injection of plasma with high platelet concentration obtained from your blood directly into the arthritic joint. This treatment stimulates the healing process by reducing inflammation and promoting tissue repair, eventually leading to long-term alleviation of arthritis symptoms.

When conservative measures fail to resolve advanced cases of arthritis, surgical procedures may be required. Our podiatrists work with orthopedic surgeons to perform joint replacements or arthroscopy to restore normal joint functions and reduce pain.
