Knee Osteoarthritis Part 3 Treatment Options

(intro music) Nonsurgical treatment options for osteoarthritis of the knee come down to three choices. First off all, there's physical therapy. This physical therapyis done with a focus on decreasing the swellingand stiffness in your knee. Improving the range of motion,

and finally, strengtheningthe muscles around the knee. Education on how to minimize impact loading and twistingforces to your knee is also very important. Secondly, we have nutraceuticals. these are naturally occurring substances, these are actually supplements, which consist of either pills or shots.

The most common pill form is that of glucosamine and chondroitin. The other pill form is omega3, also known as fish oils. When we give injections, they are usually hylauronic acid. This is, again, a supplement. That is, hylauronic acid isalready found in your body.

We're simply adding to it. This mimics the natural lubricating fluid that is found in your knee. These injections are given in a series of either three or five injections, over a three to five week period. While it can take several weeks to begin to feel relief from your symptoms,

once you have relief, itcan last for several months, or even several years. The third category isthat of pharmaceuticals. These are medications. Once again, they come in two flavors, either pills or shots. The most common form of pill is that of a nonsteroidalantiinflammatory drug.

A very common example isMotrin, or an ibuprofen. These medications, once again, are used to controlboth swelling and pain. The injection form is that of cortizone. This is a very powerfulantiinflammatory medication. These injections are typically spaced at least three to four months apart. Once they're given, they can give relief
