Relief can be found by:

  • Managing your weight.

  • Getting exercise.

  • Avoiding and/or treating joint injuries.

  • Eating right.

There are also many treatments your doctor can recommend or prescribe. They range from over-the-counter pain relievers to injections of corticosteroids or other compounds and, eventually, surgery to replace the painful, damaged joint.
