Mid-foot Osteoarthritis is not generally caused by exercise but can be attributed to previous injuries, bodyweight, family history, age and poor foot biomechanics. Osteoarthritis involves cartilage wear in the body's joints and general stiffening of the soft tissues that surround the joints.
Symptoms are pain and tenderness directly over the mid-foot joints, particularly when twisting the mid-foot and when walking up and down stairs. The pain can extend into the toes in some individuals.
Over pronation puts added pressure onto joints in the foot that are affected by osteoarthritis. Orthotic insoles are the perfect starting point for relief from the pain of Mid-foot Osteoartritis.
