    Pain in my joints

    Johnbrittas posted:

    I've had x-rays of my ankles and feet due the pain I was experiencing pain in my joints. My lower starts to ache, both my legs are weak, I'm unable to jog anymore because my left foot drags after a few laps. The x-ray says that there is a joint space narrowing with subchondral sclerosis and small marginal osteophyte formation. This pretty much explains the pain I have in my right foot. I recently read in an article by PhysioNow that Bunion surgery will be the best recovery procedure for arthritis and it should be done with the approach of a skilled physiotherapist. I have talked to one of a therapist in Mississauga and taken appointment for next week. But don't know whether it'll be safe and guarantee the best recovery. Has anyone experienced this? Will any physiotherapy treatment help for this?
