Arthritis is a condition that affects the joints of the body, including the joints of the feet, and can occur at any age. Symptoms of foot and ankle arthritis include pain, swelling, tenderness, and loss of mobility.

There are three major forms of arthritis: Osteoarthritis, Post-Traumatic Arthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and involves the gradual wearing down of the joint lining. The pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis often worsens gradually over time.

Post Traumatic Arthritis is a form of osteoarthritis that is caused by a previous acute injury or physical trauma. Similar to osteoarthritis, it involves the wearing down of the joint lining.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease where the white blood cells begin to attack and destroy a person's own cartilage. When rheumatoid arthritis occurs in the feet, the synovium, a thin layer of tissue lining the joint, becomes inflamed and erodes the joint.
