Abstract

The pharmacological management of osteoarthritis includes pure analgesia, anti-inflammatory drugs and substances supporting tissue maintenance in osteoarthritic joints. The decision for the treatment modality is made depending on the affected joint, the stage of the disease, the extent and frequency of inflammatory flares and the patient risk profile. This article gives an overview of the current treatment modalities including the advantages and disadvantages.
