If you suffer from either of these painful conditions, let our 5-star-rated podiatrist bring you relief and enhanced mobility.
Osteoarthritis is known by a few different names, including degenerative joint disease and degenerative arthritis. No matter what it is called, you are not alone if you suffer from osteoarthritis in your feet and other areas. About 27 million Americans live with osteoarthritis every day.
This chronic condition causes the cartilage in your joints to break down, causing pain and inhibiting a joint’s ability to move. The most common part of the foot to be afflicted by this condition is the big toe.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes your body to mistakenly attack your joints in the same way it would fight off an infection. The result is inflammation in your joints that impede their mobility. If rheumatoid arthritis is not treated, the inflammation can eventually cause the cartilage in your joints to break down, causing major pain and further inhibiting your mobility.
Approximately 1.5 million Americans are afflicted by rheumatoid arthritis, which can affect more than your joints. So if you believe you suffer from this condition, it is important that you seek treatment right away.
If you suffer from arthritis in any of its stages, Dr. Nick can help! We offer both nonsurgical and surgical treatment options to combat the pain and immobility caused by arthritis. Call our podiatry office in Lenox Hill at 646.657.0070 or click here to request an appointment and consultation today.
