Arthritis In Heel Of Foot
Arthritis In Heel Of Foot: Arthritis develop around the heel and lead to chronic aching pain. This can manifest itself during rest and during movement. Learn how to fix it with the guide below.
What Is Arthritis?
Arthritis generally means the irritation of a joint. A joint is two bones that move against each other; there is usually smooth cartilage coating the bone there, as well as a lubricating fluid. If the joint becomes swollen, this is known as inflammation thus termed “arthritis”.
There are many reasons a joint can become inflamed:
- Wear & tear of the cartilage, this is known as osteoarthritis.
- A systemic autoimmune, inflammatory disease known as rheumatoid arthritis.
- A traumatic injury leading to damage, known as traumatic arthritis.
- A buildup of crystals in the joint (mostly just the big toe), known as gout.
- Understand that there is almost a 95%+ chance that it is not arthritis irritating your heel, but a heel spur, plantar fasciitis or nerve pain!
**But before you click, understand that your heel pain is probably not due to arthritis.**
Almost All Is Plantar Fasciitis!
The plantar fascia is a ligament at the bottom of the foot. Irritation of this ligament around the heel region is essentially the #1 foot complaint in the USA! Studies show that approximately 15-25% of people or more will be plagued by this condition throughout their life.
As you get older the plantar fascia becomes stretched and strained. It develops little micro-tears that never heal properly and are always painful, it can take months or years to heal if not treated properly!
