Have you checked with your doctor? There are some physical therapy-type excercises that might help. Also, pain relievers tend to be fairly effective. For osteoarthritis, doctors usually start with acetaminophen because the side effects are minimal. Also recommended: non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen and naproxen, or COX-2 inhibitors such as celecoxib and valdecoxib. But its important to check with your doctor before starting medications!
