Treatment options for knee OA

Although no cure currently exists for osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, several treatment options are available to help alleviate the pain and allow you to get on with your life.

You may decide to look at the surgical route, although many people choose oral medication or injections to ease the pain.

There is, however, another kind of non-surgical treatment, which is safe, easy to use and clinically proven to ease the pain. The Unloader One knee brace is less invasive than surgery and has none of the side effects of medication.

Keep your joints flexible with moderate exercise

Studies have shown that regular, moderate exercise is beneficial to arthritis sufferers. It helps keep your joints flexible and increases your range of motion. When you exercise, your body releases endorphins, which are natural pain-killers.

The first and most important step is to discuss with your doctor your lifestyle and the things you are missing out on because of knee pain. The treatment you choose should reflect your lifestyle and allow you to return to the activities you love. You may find that you do not require surgery in order to be active again and with less pain.

The importance of personal, tailor-made treatment plans

Most doctors will create a tailor-made treatment plan for individual patients, as everyone is different. The plan may include a combination of lifestyle changes (to lose weight or increase activity levels etc), bracing and/or physiotherapy, plus appropriate medication as necessary.

"Are there any other options?"

After suffering two knee operations, Bill Bielmyers' doctor told him he needed total knee replacement surgery. Bill objected.
"I said, ‘Doc, I’m 64, I don’t want to go through another knee operation and have all these restrictions. Are there any other options?"
