A doctor's diagnosis is the first step, so you know what kind of arthritis or other problem you are dealing with. Physical therapy and exercise programs can often reduce pain, but must be maintained. Medications reduce the pain you feel, and may increase mobility. Walking or other exercise programs sometimes help. Doctors sometimes recommend surgery for severe pain.
