Can Pain In The Big Toe Joint Be Treated?

Pain in the joints of the foot can often be caused from cartilage loss and arthritic changes such as bone spurs.  Pain in the big toe joint can be treated by resting, anti-inflammatory medication, icing, and custom orthotics if it is caught early.  In the later stages of arthritis when other conservative therapies haven't provided adequate pain relief, surgical options can also help decrease pain and return you to your desired activity level.  Surgical options include removing bone spurs, realigning the joint through an osteotomy, joint fusion, or joint replacement.  Call our Colorado Springs podiatrist at 719-488-4664, so we can help you!
