Pharmacological Therapy For Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, is a degenerative joint disorder characterized by the gradual deterioration of joint cartilage and the underlying bone. It often affects weight-bearing joints such as the knees, hips, and hands, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced joint mobility. Risk factors include aging, joint overuse, and genetic predisposition. While there is no cure, management involves pain relief through medications, physical therapy, and lifestyle modifications such as weight management and exercise. In severe cases, surgical interventions like joint replacement may be considered. Osteoarthritis poses a significant global health burden, underscoring the importance of early diagnosis and comprehensive management strategies to improve the quality of life for those affected.
