Why do I get it?
It is an autoimmune disease which means that the immune system attacks the cells of the joints by mistake.
What can be done by a Podiatrist?
Over time the damage to the joints can unfortunately cause foot shape changes, callus and corns too. So supportive therapy is very helpful in limiting pain and discomfort. From regular maintenance care.
