If you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA), you’re probably wondering how it affects the joints of the foot and ankle. Usually it starts in your hands and feet, on both sides of the body. You may experience stiff joints, and painful swelling.
If you know what signs to look out for, your podiatrist (if it’s a foot condition) will be able to treat the symptoms and bring you comfort. Some of the signs include difficulty in climbing stairs but over time it can even affect your walking ability or even just standing up.
Call us for a consultation if you feel the early signs, don’t wait!
