Options for Managing Arthritis Pain
Arthritis pain relief treatments are many and varied, including:
- OTC anti-inflammatory medication and/or palliatives
- Prescription anti-inflammatory medication
- Pain blockers
- Joint replacement surgery
The type of treatment that works best for you will be determined by a number of factors, such as:
- Your type of arthritis—osteoarthritis (a degenerative joint disease) or rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune disease)
- Your age
- Your lifestyle
