Osteoarthritis of the big toe manifests as swelling and pain around the inside of your foot near the base of your big toe. Patients often experience increased pain with activities and walking that is elevated by rest. Trauma can be the primary cause of osteoarthritis but position of bones can have a large influence as well.
We have many great treatment options for arthritis of the big toe included both surgical and non-surgical options. The best indicator of which category of treatments is appropriate is based of radiological examination, an x-ray. If you suffer from big toe pain, make a appointment so we can evaluate your joint and get you pain free. Myself, Dr. Brandon Nelson, or my partner Dr. Timothy Young would be happy to see you.
