In brief: Surgery
The only way to truly "cure" arthritis is to remove the worn joint, and replace it with a prosthetic one.
Having said that, there are many things that can be done to treat symptoms associated with oa. Nsaids, ice, avoid painful activities, injections of corticosteroids or viscosupplements, occasionally an arthroscopic clean-out (in very select cases). Consult with your favorite orthopedic surgeon.
