Our Treatment Approach
Most patients start with lifestyle modifications, such as weight loss and exercise, which can be helpful in preserving your joints and delaying the progression of arthritis. Other treatments, such as over the counter NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs), physical therapy, braces, and walking aids can be helpful in reducing your pain and maintaining your activity level. If that doesn’t help, you and your care team can discuss options like topical NSAIDs or injections. Depending on the progression of your disorder and your goals, joint replacement surgery may be an option to address your arthritis.
