Rheumatoid Arthritis and Your Feet

About 90% of people who have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis will develop symptoms in their feet. Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease that attacks your own immune system. Instead of protecting your joints, your body will attack and inflame your joints causing pain, swelling, and stiffness. When it comes to your feet, you could develop bunions and your toes may begin to curl causing issues such as claw toe or hammertoe.[1]

If you have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis, you should see a podiatrist right away. You need custom-molded shoes and insoles to prevent further subluxation of the joints of your feet and ankle.
