In brief: Different ways

Some arrhythmias can be treated with medications; others can be modified or even cured with a procedure in the cardiac catheterization lab (radio frequency ablation).
It will depend on what the type and or mechanism of the arrhythmia is and how much of an impact it is having.

In brief: Variety of ways

There are a variety of medications which can control arrhythmias some of which are fairly benign and others which have significant side effects.
The electrical behavior of the heart can be modified using a technique called ablation. Although this procedure is invasive, it is often very effective in controlling the arrhythmia and relieving the need for medications.
