Health Tip: Managing Rheumatoid Arthritis

(HealthDay News) -- Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease that causes considerable pain in joints. At some point, most people with RA develop pain in the ankle and foot.

While there is no cure, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says there are things you can do to ease symptoms of the disease:

  • Rest. Limit activities that make the pain worse. Biking, elliptical training machines and swimming are good alternatives to activities that stress the foot.
  • Apply Ice. Four times daily, put ice on the most painful joints.
  • Take Medication. Anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or naproxen can help reduce swelling and pain.
  • Wear orthotics. Custom insoles may be an effective way to stabilize the foot and reduce pain.
