If you have what we suspect is gout, it can be determined through further tests such as blood drawing. Gout is a condition where uric acid builds up and develops in your body and you can’t get rid of it or secrete it.
If you have big toe pain the treatments are simple; one could be a custom orthotic that goes in your shoe. A shoe change can also be done. For the betterment of all our patients, our offices have a shoe store where we can order a shoe to accommodate your deformity. Sometimes surgery is necessary, even cortisone injections.
So if you have big toe joint pain, please give us a call at 978-794-8406. We have offices in North Andover, Lowell, and Haverhill.”
