In this chapter, we will cover osteoarthritis. First we will provide an overview, with definitions, pathogenesis and risk factors, and clinical features, followed by recommendations for holistic management of the disease. A detailed discussion on the prevalence and impact of foot disease is then given, by area of the foot. Specific non-pharmacological and pharmacological management are described, and surgical options are outlined. Finally, clinical trials and the future direction of research are covered.
