In brief: NSAIDs

Maybe helpful. Also consider supplements like glucosamine/chondroitin.
Lastly if not improving consider how platelet therapy or stem cells can be helpful for you. Check out Regenexx.Com

In brief: Wear and tear....

Osteoarthritis comes from wear and tear on the joints.
If you are overweight or obese, you may get considerable relief by losing a portion or your weight, i.e., even five percent. This will take some of the stress off the joints. If you can take them, over-the-counter medications such as Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) may help - but they're not for everyone, so check with your doctor. Exercise also helps!
