Alleviating Ankle Pain and Arthritis
Dr. Robyn Vargo hosts free Total Ankle Replacement talk May 7 at Silver Cross
New Lenox, IL (April 30, 2013)—Ankle arthritis can be caused by a prior injury, wear and tear, deformity or acute inflammatory conditions such as Rheumatoid arthritis or infection. When an ankle is injured, it is susceptible to many debilitating conditions such as increased inflammation in the joint and arthritis. Infections of the ankle joint can cause damage to the cartilage cells, restricting the ability to regenerate and eventually causing permanent damage to the joint. Genetic pre-disposition to arthritis is not well understood but affects some individuals uniquely, causing their joints to wear out faster than others.
