Conditions & Treatments

Living with Osteoarthritis

With your physician’s help, you certainly can — and you can start today! Your physician can prescribe analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs to help control your knee pain. Your job is to build up your thigh muscles so they can help take the pressure off your knees. A physical therapist or qualified trainer can teach you how to do this. Try to lose weight — if you need to. Extra weight is very hard on arthritic knees. Low-impact exercise and stretching in warm water, riding a stationary bike, and walking will help you lose weight and keep your knees flexible. If your pain worsens, your doctor may suggest additional treatment. Some people with severe osteoarthritis in the knee may choose to have arthroscopic surgery to help relieve the pain. If all else fails, your physician may recommend a knee replacement. Although there is no cure for osteoarthritis, you can —with the help of medication and lifestyle changes — still enjoy a normal life.
