Osteoarthritis (Ball of foot)
Osteoarthritis is due to a breakdown of the cartilage that lines the ends of the bones. This cartilage acts as a shock absorber and prevents friction between the surfaces, and as it breaks down it causes swelling and can lead to osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is when the bony surfaces start to lay down extra bone into the area, leading to further pain, swelling and loss of range of motion.
While it not possible to reverse this cycle, The Heal My Injury Treatment Plan has been designed to slow down the process, improve range of motion and reduce pain.
Our treatment plans are designed over three phases. Click the link below to get started with your personal treatment plan:
