Pain and Treatment
The Arthritis Society of
Canada predicts that, within
a generation, there will be a
new diagnosis of osteoarthritis
in Canada every 60 seconds.
As osteoarthritis is a degenerative chronic disease that can be debilitating, treatment protocols
that work to manage symptoms and potentially stave off the progression of the disease are
essential to controlling pain and improving the patient’s ability to function. These potential benefits
enable patients to remain active and productive longer than without treatment.
