What is Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disorder. This means that the cartilage in the joints, as well as the lining of the joint, has been worn away over time. This can also lead to damage to the bone in the joints

Treatments for Osteoarthritis

There is no cure for osteoarthritis. However, unlike other forms of arthritis, it is not progressive. So while you can’t get rid of it, you can find ways to relieve the symptoms. Osteoarthritis treatment London can include the following things.

Lifestyle changes – Making changes to your daily routine can have a big impact on your pain. Exercise, done correctly, can drastically reduce the pain of the condition. Losing some weight can be a big help depending on the joints that are affected. Talking to your doctor can help you know what changes you can make.

Pain Medicines – If the pain of arthritis is stopping you from doing things then you might need to take some pain killers. It is best to talk to your doctor if you are taking them for a long time as there can be unpleasant side effects from taking pain killers for a long time.

Steroid Injections – Specialists may use these if nothing else is working. They can be effective in reducing pain for weeks or months at a time.

Surgery – If the bone in your joint is damaged then surgery may be considered. There is a range of surgical options. Starting with small trimming procedures up to joint replacements.
