Advances in Osteoarthritis Pain Management

About This Series

Osteoarthritis affects over 30 million Americans, making it the most common form of arthritis. With an aging population and increasing rates of obesity, the number of people with osteoarthritis continues to grow. It is important for clinicians to diagnose osteoarthritis early and subsequently develop individualized treatment strategies based on the degree of arthritis and disability and on any comorbidities that the patient may have. This page provides education on the management of osteoarthritis, including use of intra-articular steroids and therapy sequence.
