In prior systematic reviews, apparent benefits of hyaluronic acid injections in OA have been reported. Tai chi is strongly recommended for patients with knee and/or hip OA. Based on the available evidence, either strong or conditional recommendations were made for or against the approaches evaluated. A number of studies have demonstrated potential analgesic benefits with various ablation techniques but, because of the heterogeneity of techniques and controls used and lack of long‐term safety data, this recommendation is conditional. Strong recommendations were also made for weight loss in patients with knee and/or hip OA who are overweight or obese, self‐efficacy and self‐management programs, tai chi, cane use, first CMC joint orthoses, tibiofemoral bracing, topical NSAIDs for knee OA and oral NSAIDs for hand, knee, and/or hip OA, and intraarticular glucocorticoid injections for knee and/or hip OA. Conditional recommendations are those for which the majority of informed patients would choose to follow the recommended course of action, but some would not 14, 15. A hierarchy of outcome measures assessing pain and function in OA was developed based on the published literature 8, 9. However, injection schedules, injection sites, and comparators have varied substantially between trials.

Methods A list of pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic modalities commonly used to manage knee, hip, and hand OA as well as clinical scenarios representing patients with symptomatic hand, hip, and knee OA were generated.

Differences between diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis and spondyloarthritis. Evidence suggests that duloxetine has efficacy in the treatment of OA when used alone or in combination with NSAIDs; however, there are issues regarding tolerability and side effects. These programs use a multidisciplinary group–based format combining sessions on skill‐building (goal‐setting, problem‐solving, positive thinking), education about the disease and about medication effects and side effects, joint protection measures, and fitness and exercise goals and approaches.

Few studies have employed monitoring devices or pre‐ and postintervention assessment of cardiovascular or musculoskeletal fitness, so targets using these devices or assessments are not available. Overall, exercise programs are more effective if supervised, often by physical therapists and sometimes in a class setting, rather than when performed by the individual at home. Thus, conditional recommendations are particularly value‐ and preference‐sensitive and always warrant a full shared decision‐making approach involving a complete and clear explication of benefits, harms, and burdens in language and in a context that patients understand 16. Topical capsaicin is conditionally recommended for patients with knee OA and conditionally recommended against in patients with hand OA. Use of the lowest possible doses for the shortest possible length of time is prudent, particularly since a recent systematic review and meta‐analysis suggests that less pain relief occurs during longer trials in the treatment of non‐cancer chronic pain 30. Although one might expect balance exercises to help reduce the risk of falls in patients with OA, RCTs to date have not addressed this outcome in this population, and the low quality of evidence addressing the use of balance exercises necessitates only a conditional recommendation for balance exercises. Nonetheless, glucosamine remains among the most commonly used dietary supplements in the US 31, and clinicians should be aware that many patients perceive that glucosamine is efficacious. Management of knee osteoarthritis in primary care. Although RCTs are considered the gold standard for evaluation, a number of limitations of RCTs proved particularly important in the formulation of the final recommendations: possible publication bias (favoring publication of positive results), inadequate blinding, and inadequate provision of active comparators and appropriate sham alternatives. Patient Panel input demonstrated a high level of understanding concerning addiction potential, but also included an appreciation for the role of these agents when other pharmacologic and physical options have been ineffective. Comment in Arthritis Rheum. Important directions for research include gaining a more comprehensive understanding of the optimal types of exercises and the modifications that should be used based on disease location and severity, study of the intensity of exercise that would be optimal for a given individual (https;://;delin;es/second-editi;on/report.aspx), defining optimal footwear for patients with knee and hip OA and understanding the interaction between footwear and exercise, conducting rigorous RCTs for physical modality options in hand OA, assessing a broader array of outcomes, including fall prevention, assessing optimal use of oral, topical, and injectable agents alone and in combination, obtaining a better understanding of the role of integrative medicine, including massage, herbal products, medical marijuana, and additional mind‐body interventions, and exploring agents with novel mechanisms of action for prevention and treatment.

To develop an evidence‐based guideline for the comprehensive management of osteoarthritis (OA) as a collaboration between the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) and the Arthritis Foundation, updating the 2012 ACR recommendations for the management of hand, hip, and knee OA. Though a single small study of an oral bisphosphonate suggested a potential analgesic benefit in OA, the preponderance of data shows no improvement in pain or functional outcomes. These 2019 ACR/AF recommendations for the management of OA are based on the best available evidence of benefit, safety, and tolerability of physical, educational, behavioral, psychosocial, mind‐body, and pharmacologic interventions, as well as the consensus judgment of clinical experts. Duloxetine is conditionally recommended for patients with knee, hip, and/or hand OA. Although effect sizes are generally small, the benefits of participation in self‐efficacy and self‐management programs are consistent across studies, and risks are minimal. While this guideline did not address the relative merits of different NSAIDs, there is evidence suggesting that certain agents may have more favorable side effect profiles than others 25-27. We focused on management options that are available in the US and, for pharmacologic therapies, we additionally focused on agents that are available in pharmaceutical‐grade formulations, thus eliminating most nutraceuticals. An overview of a general approach to management of OA is outlined in Figure 1 for recommended options, but no specific hierarchy of one option over another is implied other than on the basis of strength of the recommendation. However, each patient should be assessed for the presence of medical conditions, such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, heart failure, gastrointestinal bleeding risk, chronic kidney disease, or other comorbidities, that might have an impact on their risk of side effects from certain pharmacologic agents, as well as injuries, disease severity, surgical history, and access to and availability of services (transportation, distance, ability to take time off work, cost, insurance coverage) that might have an impact on the choice of physical, psychological, and mind‐body approaches. This treatment has not been evaluated in hand OA and, therefore, no recommendation is made with regard to OA of the hand. Due to lack of data, no recommendation can be made regarding use of yoga to help manage symptoms of hip OA. Documents related to the 2019 Osteoarthritis Guideline: American College of Rheumatology Recommendations for the Use of Nonpharmacologic and Pharmacologic Therapies in Osteoarthritis of the Hand, Hip, and Knee - 2012.
