Osteoarthritis Treatment


It should be known that there are no proven treatments for osteoarthritis of the spine. With that said, patients may take a variety of medications to achieve pain relief from osteoarthritis, including acetaminophen like Tylenol and NSAIDs (non-steroidal inflammatory drugs) like aspirin (Bayer, Ecotrin), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, Nupren), and naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn, Anaprox, Naprelan).

Osteoarthritis may also be treated via many pain-relieving creams, rubs and sprays, cortisone injections, mild narcotic painkillers and nutritional supplements. Besides medications, osteoarthritis may be treated with exercise, physical therapy, chiropractic manipulation, massage therapy, relaxation, nerve stimulation, acupuncture and lifestyle changes. While rare, surgery may be needed for spinal osteoarthritis when the joint is unstable or a nerve root is pinched.
