Response: Older adults with joint pain may benefit from routinely reviewing their prescription and over-the-counter medications with their health care providers
Treatments such as massage, splints and braces, and exercise are often helpful for joint pain, even for those who have not been diagnosed with arthritis.
Oral steroids should not be routinely prescribed to treat joint pain in older adults. Over-the-counter medications can help with many types of joint pain, but health care providers should make sure to educate older adults about their risks and monitor for potential complications.
