Arthritis & Podiatriatic Rheumatology

Arthritis encompasses a large number of auto-immune conditions that affect joints. 

You’ve probably heard of the common ones: Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Lower limb and feet symptoms include joint pain and tenderness, swelling and inflammation, redness, creaking in your joints, restrictions to movement and feeling as if you’re walking on broken glass. Arthritis can even change the shape of your joints and feet over time. 

But what you might not know is just how much a podiatrist specialising in podiatric rheumatology can help.
