Arthritis can affect every part of your body. But having so many bones and joints in your feet can make them particularly susceptible to osteoarthritis and other types of arthritis. Foot pain is sometimes the first indicator that a person has arthritis.
Different things may cause chronic pain. Ramos Podiatry will take the time to determine the root cause of your pain and determine if arthritis is a part of the problem.
Ramos Podiatry has several treatments that can help the symptoms of arthritis in your feet, though we may also recommend you see a primary care doctor or rheumatologist too.
Shockwave Therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that can help with the pain. This procedure uses sound waves directed at the painful area. Shockwave Therapy boosts your body’s natural healing by increasing blood flow. It is a painless and quick procedure and does not require any cutting or needles. There are no side effects, and many patients see improvement as quickly as the next day.
