If you are looking for ankle arthritis treatment in Manhattan, NY, then look no further than Silverstone Podiatry. There are over 100 different causes of arthritis – the most common 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.
Osteoarthritis is also called degenerative joint disease and degenerative arthritis. This chronic condition 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. If not treated, the inflammation can eventually cause the cartilage in your joints to break down, causing significant pain and further inhibiting your mobility.
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.
If you experienced an injury to your ankle in the past, most commonly a dislocation or fracture, that injury can cause the cartilage in your joints to erode. When this occurs, the condition is called post-traumatic arthritis. This condition acts similarly to osteoarthritis and causes swelling, joint pain, fluid accumulation, and decreased mobility.
Although there is no cure for arthritis, there are many treatments available that can lessen symptoms and help you lead a more comfortable and active lifestyle. These treatments vary depending on the severity of your condition, but can include the following:
