Degenerative Arthritis in Toe joint

1
SHARE

After complaining about the pain I was experiencing while during my walking excercises, I was told by my doctor (after x-rays) that I have degenerative arthritis in the toe joint.
I was given a deflamitory drug which did absolutely nothing to reduce the swelling in the joint.
The only thing that works is to sit and not walk. My question is: Is there a procedure that can be performed to correct this problem or help reduce the pain so I can jog/run and walk at lengths again?
I can’t even play 18 holes of golf due to the extreme amount of pain from walking.
Thanks!

  1. I recommend you see a podiatrist and if you can obtain copies of your x-rays, bring them to your visit. After an evaluation, the doctor will make a treatment recommendation based on the findings.Good luck.
