Arthritis: You may need to try several different treatments, or combinations of treatments, before you determine what works best for you. Some treatment options include: analgesics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, counterirritants, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs, biologics, corticosteroids, physical therapy, joint replacement, or joint fusion.
