People with arthritis may already know about the foot problems it can cause, such as bunions or hammer toe. As such, arthritic individuals should be extra careful when shoe shopping and look for quality, support and roominess.
An article in Arthritis Today gives some tips on shopping for shoes to suit arthritic feet from Arnold Ravick, D.P.M., a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association.
He said that people should shop toward the end of the day when feet are swollen and sore.
"If your foot can tolerate a shoe when it feels bad, think how great it will be when your foot feels better," Ravick said, quoted by the news source.
