In brief: Can slow progression

Asking how to reverse degenerative arthritis is like asking how to build up your car's worn brake pads.
The only 'reversal' is the extreme of joint replacement. Short of that, your best bet is to slow the progression. Avoid excessive heavy 'mileage', lose weight to decrease joint load, and strengthen surrounding muscles and joint support structures.
