What do I need to know about arthritis footcare?

ANSWER

Many forms of arthritis often can make it hard and painful to walk. Osteoarthritis, for example, can damage the cartilage and lead to bony spurs at the base of the big toe. You may get bunions, which calls for wider shoes. Or the arch of your foot and wear down and give you spurs on the top of your foot. That can make your feet and toes feel burning. Tie your shoes loosely or wear a pair that don’t bind you at the spur.
