Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a long-term condition and cannot be cured, but it doesn’t necessarily get any worse over time and it can sometimes gradually improve. A number of treatments are also available to reduce the symptoms.

Mild symptoms can sometimes be managed with simple measures including:

  • regular exercise
  • losing weight if you’re overweight
  • wearing suitable footwear
  • using special devices to reduce the strain on your joints during your everyday activities
