Treatments for Ankle Arthritis

Treatments for ankle arthritis:

  • Footwear changes: A cushioned insert or a ‘rocker-bottom’ could help with symptoms.
  • Activity modifications: Limit impact activities like running and jumping.
  • Braces: A brace can hold the ankle joint in position, support the joint and prevent excessive motion.
  • Cortisone injections: While these cannot be performed regularly, an occasional injection is helpful in most patients with ankle arthritis.
