Arthritis and Osteoarthritis of the Ankle

Stone is on his feet, so called arthritis of the big toe. During the treatment course under Dr. Joseph Purita, you’ll learn how to do it at home exercises for the foot and toes with osteoarthritis. Carrying out a comprehensive program of treatment of osteoarthritis of the big toe may be enough to successfully resist the development of strain I metatarsophalangeal joint.

Pain syndrome that usually develops as a result of traumatic injuries and create problem. Later chronically supports the pain can be an expression of degenerative processes developing in the knee. In many ways, this is due to the fact that the ankle is more concept than morphofunctional education. Mechanical factor us a prominent position among the reasons that lead to abnormalities in the large synovial joints and plays a prominent role.

However, the burden falling on the structure of the ankle joint, so large that under adverse conditions (trauma, congenital anomalies, changes in movement patterns in lesions of the hip and knee joints) very quickly develop irreversible bone disorder. Thus, pain in this area often is the result of direct exposure is compressed adaptive bone growths on the musculoligamentous and nerve tissue.

Osteoarthritis I metatarsophalangeal joint (big toe) is common and is usually associated with violation of statics – transverse or longitudinal flat feet, injury, occupational overload. When X-ray determined by joint space narrowing, cysts are detected early, osteoarthritis, dorsal osteophytes. Often there is a subluxation and dislocation of the full head I metatarsal bone.

Many doctors do not distinguish between osteoarthritis metatarsophalangeal joints and hypertrophy of bone phalanx I toe that results from prolonged (wearing tight shoes with a narrow toe, especially for women). As a result, the thumb strongly deflected inward, clinging to the second finger. Dr. Joseph Purita has given me a clear idea about that.

Bulging due to abnormal head bones of the foot receives additional trauma during walking and gradually deformed, which further leads to a deformation of the entire foot combination that at this stage of the disease severely limits the possibility of rehabilitation.

In the initial stages of deformation of the joint very good results special massage the foot and toes. Apply many of the techniques of hand massage with soft techniques of manual therapy and osteopathy.

For successful treatment it is necessary to remove all the triggers that contribute to the development of osteoarthritis of the joint of the big toe. First of all, you need a reasonable approach to the selection of shoes. The health of your feet should be a priority fashion matter, compressing the foot and compressive fingers shoes. And high heels are unstable in addition to the fact that increases the degree of squeezing fingers shoes, and even provoke biomechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, creating an axial loading of the spine, hip, knee and ankle joints.
