Abstract: Knee and hip osteoarthritis (OA) are highly prevalent joint diseases that lead to chronic pain, disability, and increased mortality. In this review, we provide a summary of nonsurgical treatments available for knee and hip OA that have evidence to support their use. We also provide a summary of the treatments available for knee and hip OA that do not have sufficient evidence to support their use. Treatments covered in this review include pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic modalities.
