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.
