Title: Rheumatoid Arthritis in the Feet- What to Know?

Modern PowerPoint Presentation
Rheumatoid Arthritis happens when your immunity
goes slow on joint lining tissue, causing pain
and stiffness. RA is most common in hands and
feet and there are several symptoms that can help
you identify RA. Lets talk more about it.
RA symptoms in the feet can be one or more from
  • Swelling in feet or ankles
  • Loss in range of motion in foot
  • Soreness in feet, especially after some
    activity like walking or running
  • Change in foot shape

Some general RA symptoms-
  • Abnormal weight loss
  • Quick exhaustion
  • Fatigue

Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment-
It is difficult to treat RA completely but there
are few treatments that can bring some relief and
reduce some flare-ups that you may have. Some
effective treatments for relief from RA in your
foot are
  • Soaking feet in warm water
  • Wearing specialised boots that can prevent
    pressure on joints while walking
  • Getting surgery done to fix inflamed tissue
  • Taking steroids into the joints for temporary
    relief in case of excess pain

Some Lifestyle Tips-
Get enough sleep
Allow your body to get enough rest so that the
joints can heal.
Avoid stress
Stress is not good for the body and can increase
flare -ups. Listen to music, meditate and get
relief from stress.
Consume anti-inflammatory diet
An anti-inflammatory diet comprising of
vegetables, fruits, whole grains can help bring
some relief in RA symptoms.
Quit smoking
Smoking can increase severity of RA symptoms and
may trigger the onset of RA.
