Arthritis of the Ankle: Symptoms, Risk Factors, Prevention & Treatment

Wat is artritis?

Artritis is a condition in which the joint or multiple joints experience inflammation and pain. Arthritis in the ankle is most commonly caused by wear and tear (osteoarthritis) over the years.  Rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disorder that affects the entire body, is another type of arthritis that can occur in the ankle.  The inside of the normal ankle joint is lined completely by smooth cartilage.  The arthritic ankle loses this smooth cartilage lining which normally allows for low friction and pain free weight bearing.  Once the cartilage lining is worn down completely, the underlying bone is exposed and becomes vulnerable for grinding bone to bone.
