Are You Suffering from Arthritis in your toes?
Arthritis commonly attacks the toes. Sometimes the cartilage in the toe joints wears away and tissue may become inflamed and cause pain or aching. Classic symptoms are either general pain in the toes or pain in the big toe.
If you are suffering from pain in your toes and are not sure if the pain is due to arthritis, book an appointment with Mr.Tony Wilkinson or Mr.Steve Finney they will be able to determine whether the pain is caused by arthritis or from another cause.
Symptoms of Arthritis to Watch Out for Include:
- Pain between the toes
- Clicking and popping noises
- A change in appearance
- Heat from inflammation.
