Anti-inflammatories

Physicians use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, along with strengthening programs, to treat mild to moderate pain associated with inflammation in the knee. 

Corticosteroid injection

Medication, such as corticosteroid injections, are an important part of a treatment protocol for knee injuries. A caregiver will inject a dose of corticosteroid directly into the joint to decrease inflammation. 

Glucosamine/Chondroitin

Dietary supplements used in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis to reduce pain.

Joint fluid therapy

Joint Fluid Therapy involves the replacement of the natural lubricants that are found in healthy joints to help increase joint lubrication and cushioning and to reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis.

Knee braces and sleeves

A brace is used to provide external stability to the knee joint and encourage healing. A specialist will recommend knee braces and sleeves to help strengthen the knee muscle while reducing pain and inflammation. 

Physical therapy

Physical therapy is an integral component ​for treating knee pain. A physician will recommend physical therapy after surgery or as an ongoing treatment regimen to care for your knee injury.
