All osteoarthritis treatments should be made available on the NHS
Osteoarthritis is one of the most debilitating degenerative diseases around with a prevalence of 1 in 5 adults over the age of 50. Current treatments available are limited to rest, weight loss and anti-inflammatory medication.
Many non pharmacological treatments, such as Kneease, a treatment for osteoarthritic knee pain, are only available privately and not on the NHS. The government should act to add all drug free pain relief treatments to the drug tariff to make them available for all sufferers.
