Managing Knee Osteoarthritis Is a Marathon, Not a Sprint
Osteoarthritis is a lifelong condition. While there is no cure, there are treatment options to help successfully manage symptoms over the long run.
The goals of treatment for osteoarthritis are to decrease pain, maintain or improve joint movement, and limit the loss of joint function for as long as possible.
No single therapy works for everybody, and treatments vary in terms of risks, side effects, and how long their benefits last. It is important to discuss your options with your doctor. Many doctors will recommend an approach that includes a combination of different treatments.
