In industrialised countries, more than 64% of the population aged over 60 suffers from arthrosis, arthritis or osteoporosis and these conditions are also the main cause of disability in the elderly.
To tackle the more or less intense pain caused by such disorders, pharmacological therapies are normally used.
The most commonly used drugs are:
- antalgesics or analgesics, which soothe and reduce the pain felt, without intervening on the causes that have triggered it;
- anti-inflammatories, which are used to reduce inflammation and to treat pain;
- intra-articular injections, for the conservative treatment of arthrosis, with hyaluronic acid-based products.
