Osteoarthritis is a challenging diagnosis to navigate and treat. Management options range from nonpharmacological agents to surgical repair. No specific combination of therapies has yet been identified for optimal management although a variety of therapeutic options have been studied. This case report details the use of low-level laser therapy, acupuncture, and herbal medicine in a 64-y-old female with radiographically confirmed osteoarthritis. Near-complete resolution of her symptoms was associated with the multiple therapies outlined in this case report.
