Our feet and ankles can be affected by several types of arthritis including osteoarthritis and inflammatory arthritis.


Osteoarthritis can affect any of the joints in your feet. As you get older, osteoarthritis can be linked to changes in the shape of your feet, which may cause pain.

Osteoarthritis often affects your big toe joint. It’ll become stiffer and you won’t be able to move it as far. New bone may form which will make your bones knobblier and more likely to rub in your shoes.

If you have osteoarthritis in your feet, you’ll probably have osteoarthritis in some of your other joints, such as your hips or knees. This can make walking more difficult.

Inflammatory arthritis

There are several different forms of inflammatory arthritis which can affect your feet in different ways.

Rheumatoid arthritis affects many joints in your feet.
