Ankle Arthritis

Arthritis is a general term for a group of more than 100 diseases. The word "arthritis" means "joint inflammation." 

The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which is generally associated with aging. Other risk factors for osteoarthritis include joint injury, obesity, genetics and anatomic factors such as joint shape and alignment.

What is Ankle Arthritis?

Ankle Arthritis involves inflammation (swelling) in and around the joints of the ankle. Pain, stiffness, and swelling can result from inflammation. Ankle Arthritis can be an acute or chronic inflammation of a joint and its surrounding soft tissues. In arthritis, progressive joint deterioration occurs and the smooth "cushioning" cartilage in joints is gradually lost, resulting in the bones wearing against each other. Soft tissues in the joints also may begin to wear down. 

Generally, there are three main types of arthritis that is found in Ankle Arthritis:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Psoriatic Arthritis
