Conclusions

Although the joint pains of Osteoarthritis have long been associated with aging, the inevitability of joint damage and joint replacement is being challenged. Existing nonsurgical treatments and those being developed by medical researchers offer a future in which Osteoarthritis may be treatable with little more than a series of injections. Given the pain and disability caused by Osteoarthritis as well as the costs of so many joint replacement surgeries, this is good news for the increasing numbers of older adults.
