Degenerative Arthritis in Toe joint

After complaining about the pain I was experiencing while during my walking excercises, I was told by my doctor (after x-rays) that I have degenerative arthritis in the toe joint. I was given a deflamitory drug which did absolutely nothing to reduce the swelling in the joint. The only thing that works is to sit and not walk.

My question is: Is there a procedure that can be performed to correct this problem or help reduce the pain so I can jog/run and walk at lengths again? I can't even play 18 holes of golf due to the extreme amount of pain from walking.

Thanks!
