Midfoot Arthritis / Lisfranc Arthritis

Foot_2219797bMidfoot arthritis is due to two differing problems. The first is due to acute sprain due to trauma of the midfoot which results in a dislocation or fracture of the midfoot . This in some case requires immediate surgery.

The second cause is degeneration of cartilage due to abnormal wear and tear or chronic abnormal motion of the midfoot.

Conservative therapy includes: physical therapy, injection, orthotic and bracing. In most cases a period of relief may be available with conservative care. However, the arthritic process will continue to get worse and, in most cases, surgical correction is often required.
