Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease that frequently affects the hands and weight bearing joints of the body.

There is a wide spectrum of non-surgical treatments, starting with non-pharmacological options such as patient education and awareness, physical exercise and rehabilitation aids; pharmacological approaches that vary from prescription of acetaminophen, non-selective NSAIDs, selective COX-2 inhibitors agents and even opioid prescription. Other potential non-surgical therapeutic methods are chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine and other compounds in tablets or capsules, and intraarticular injections of visco-supplements, corticosteroids or blood-derived products.

Each injection has been shown to lower the pain in patients in some form, though hyaluronic acid treatments seem to be the safest and last the longest.
