Treatments of OA

Treatment aims to manage symptoms.

It’s important to control pain while increasing mobility and joint functioning. Physical therapy can help increase mobility. Exercise is key to staying limber and maintaining your weight. But be careful not to overuse your joints and make symptoms worse. Take frequent breaks when exercising.

There are many medications available to relieve OA pain, including acetaminophen (Tylenol) and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Cortisone injections can also be given to relieve pain, and lubrication injections can provide extra cushioning in your joints.

Depending on the severity of your OA, your doctor may suggest surgery to replace entire joints. Alternative practices can help increase mobility, reduce stress, and improve your general outlook on life.
