Silverstone Podiatry offers the most advanced care for ankle arthritis treatment in Lenox Hill, NY. While there are over 100 different causes of arthritis – the three most common ones for ankles are Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Post-traumatic Arthritis. With Dr. Nick’s extensive experience and our state-of-the-art technology, we have the expertise to treat these and many other forms of ankle arthritis for a better quality of life.
Also called degenerative joint disease and degenerative arthritis, osteoarthritis is a chronic condition that causes the cartilage in your joints to break down, causing pain and inhibiting your joints’ ability to move. If you suffer from osteoarthritis in your ankles and other areas, you are not alone. Approximately 27 million Americans live with osteoarthritis every day.
If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, you have an autoimmune disease that causes your body to mistakenly attack your joints in the same way it would fight off an infection. This results in inflammation in your joints that inhibits their mobility. Left untreated, the inflammation can eventually cause the cartilage in your joints to break down, resulting in significant pain and inhibiting your mobility even more.
Rheumatoid arthritis afflicts approximately 1.5 million Americans and can affect more than your joints. So it is important that you seek treatment right away if you believe you suffer from this condition.
Post-traumatic arthritis occurs when you have experienced an injury to your ankle in the past that has caused the cartilage in your joints to erode. Post-traumatic arthritis acts similarly to osteoarthritis.
If you suffer from arthritis in any of its stages, Dr. Nick is here to help! We offer both nonsurgical and surgical treatment options to fight the pain and immobility caused by arthritis.
