Osteoarthritis affects millions of Americans every year. Characterized by the degeneration of the cartilage that cushions the body’s joints, this condition can cause discomfort, stiffness, joint tenderness, and reduced mobility. The most appropriate course of osteoarthritis treatment will depend on a number of factors, including the specific location of the joint deterioration, the extent of your symptoms and your overall health.

Osteoarthritis treatment options include:

  • Physical therapy to stretch and strengthen the muscles surrounding your joints.
  • Steroid injections, like cortisone, to provide relief from joint pain and inflammation.
  • Viscosupplementation injections which lubricate your joint and help it move more smoothly.
  • Prescription medications to provide everyday relief from pain and stiffness.
  • Joint replacement surgery for patients with more advanced joint deterioration.

At ORA Orthopedics, we take an approach that focuses on non-surgical treatment options and therapies first.  Surgical options are considered when your osteoarthritis cannot be improved by more conservative forms of treatment.
