Dr. Bahman Omrani answered:

Can arthritis be cured?

No

Painful_joints
Arthritis cannot be cured as of yet. There are different forms of arthritis. Regardless of the cause, once joint damage has taken place, it is unlikely for it to revert to normal. Some forms of arthritis may be controlled or slowed down with treatment. Although a cure is not available, effective therapy is. Stem cell therapy is showing promising results.
