Non-Operative Treatment Options
Osteoarthritis is a painful, degenerative condition that can affect any joint in the body. However, the knees and hips are common locations because they are weight-bearing joints. The pain and stiffness associated with this condition can create a challenge in the ability to perform daily living activities. Surgery is not always the solution to the pain relief.
The Bone & Joint Specialists at Little Company of Mary Hospital offer non-operative treatment options to relieve joint pain. These treatments include oral pain medication, focused physical therapy, topical pain creams, and injections that can help decrease pain and lubricate and support the joint. Our team uses the latest techniques and medications to help reduce your pain and return back to your activities. While, in some cases, surgery is the only option, non-operative treatment options also are available to delay or avoid surgical intervention. To find out if you are a candidate, call 708.974.7330.
