Managing people’s foot and leg problems that are associated with RA often will involve the podiatrist working closely with other members of the multi-disciplinary team. As such, the rheumatology team will try to ensure that problems are addressed in a timely and appropriate manner, reflecting the needs and wishes of the individual who has RA.
