You: Can use warm compresses, depending on the joint involved use stabilizers to minimize movement around the joint during movement, pt to strengthen the muscles around the joint and use of pain medications. Injections into the joint sometimes are helpful and also weight loss in obese people.

Cool mist: The best thing for a child suffered from a croupy cough is to calm him down, and place him in front of cool mist. Croup is caused by a virus the induces inflammation and swelling of the upper airway. Cool mist calms the cough. Believe it or not, taking your child out into the cool night air and sitting quietly will often relieve the discomfort.

Not necessarily: Osteoarthritis (oa) is a inflammatory joint condition that occurs usually from overuse, injury, trauma, etc. It is usually not a genetic condition but more an "age" condition. Good joint health (use without over use, keeping inflammation down with ice or medications, and avoiding trauma) will be important in avoiding oa. For good joint health, remember "motion is lotion.".
