OA pain: Depends on the area. Sleep with extra pillow between and supportive of the affected joints. Consider gentle massage, ice followed by moist heat, and gentle motion exercises.

Depends: Often people with osteoarthritis have unstable joints. The stresses on associated muscles often causes night pain. Full evaluation required to determine how to treat.
