Patients with moderate or severe pain due to osteoarthritis (OAP) usually undergo pharmacological treatment with NSAIDs and/or opioids. Many of them do not get adequate pain relief because of intolerances, contraindications and the ineffectiveness of these treatments. The main objective of the present study was to quantify the group of OAP patients who are inadequately treated for their pain in routine clinical practice in Spain and to describe the prescription flow of these patients.
