Are There Treatments To Stop Or Reverse My Osteoarthritis?

Question: Are there treatments to stop or reverse my osteoarthritis?

Answer: While in rheumatoid arthritis, there are amazing new biologic medicines that can actually stop the disease in its tracks, there are no similar medications for osteoarthritis. Our knowledge about that illness is less than it is in rheumatoid arthritis.

However, with research, we're learning more about the joint problem that relates to osteoarthritis. We know it's a global problem with the joint, not just in the cartilage or in the bone. We're working hard in finding new disease-modifying drugs but none really exist at this time.
