Foot Arthritis & Its Symptoms
Foot arthritis may develop symptoms similar to any other joint affected by arthritis. The symptoms may vary depending on the joint of the foot affected. They can range from minimal to very severe and painful, since there are 30 joints and 28 bones in the foot. Symptoms for foot arthritis typically include pain, swelling, stiffness, and difficulty walking. Regardless of the type, this type of arthritis can have a negative impact on a person’s overall health and well being, if left untreated.
