Joint Replacement Surgery (Hip and Knee)
Treatment for joint pain may include activity modification, weight loss, strength training, oral anti-inflammatory medications, or cortisone injections. However, joint replacement surgery may also be considered for more severe osteoarthritis or joint deterioration.
