YES! Our feet walk so many steps in our lifetime that being free of any arthritis here is rare. The location of the arthritis helps us to determine the best course of treatment though often times the treatments are conservative. In our feet, optimizing the structure and reducing stress to the joints can help minimize the pain associated with arthritis.
