Treatment of osteoarthritis – what questions should I ask the doctor?

  • What medication do you recommend that I use for the treatment of pain?
  • Are there side-effects to the treatment? If so, what are they?
  • What should I do, if the medication is no longer effective?
  • Is my situation suitable for an injection into the joint?
  • What types of substances can be injected, and what are the differences between them?
  • Do I need joint replacement surgery?
