Osteoarthritis treatment plans vary from person to person, as this disease can disturb several different joints. The most commonly affected joints include the knees, spine, hips, and hands. Depending on your age, overall health, activity level, and several other factors, our physicians may recommend a combination of therapies to help maximize range of motion and minimize pain. A few examples of our osteoarthritis treatments include:
- Physical therapy
