In addition to the regular exercise and medications, there are some other things that people with osteoarthritis can do, and that includes some occupational therapy and other equipment, for instance, if someone has a lot of pain in their joints of their ankles, they can talk to their doctor about getting orthotics to help keep them in proper alignment, and that proper alignment will help not just with the ankle and the foot, but also with knee and hip, and even lower back pain.

If they have more pain in the joints of their thumb or in their wrist they occupational therapy can help get appropriate splints if they need it or exercises to do. Also things like heat and ice can also help and that's a non-pharmacalogic therapy to do to reduce the inflammation that you're having.
