Pain in the foot due to transient arthropathy. Need further treatment

I went to my orthopedist who took xrays of my left foot in which I have been experiencing pain for about 2 months. Prescriptive meds haven't helped--he took xrays, said it was transient arthropathy and mild hallux rigidus. He gave me a cortison shot. What I wanted to know more about was transient arthopathy. Can you help with advice on how to avoid future episodes?

Hallux rigidus could be secondary to pain and might need evaluation of cause of pain.
Great toe involvement could be secondary to elevated uric acid levels. Pls check the same.
