The degree of freedom for the podiatry in rheumatoid arthritis is very restricted. As podiatry approach in R.A. is mainly to reduce foot-related pain, maintain/improve foot function and so mobility while protecting skin and other tissues from damage. Pain & swelling is main causes of restrictions.
Finely tuned podiatry intervention can give dramatic results in long run. Check out the images.
60 years old Lady with RA & pain mostly at right foot.
Drastic relief in foot pain in a month with customization in STRIVE orthotic footwear. But the real treat is visible correction in her foot deformities within two years.(P.S. RA deformities are progressive means worsen day by day)
Good changes can happen at any age....!
Happy to see smile on her face.
