Knee arthritis: Depending on the degree of damage, there is glucosamine and chondroitin supplements, steroid knee injections, synthetic joint fluid injections to attempt to salvage cartilage, and then joint replacement.

See your doctor: You could have a host of issues that could cause your knee pain, could be bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, ligament issues, meniscal injury, sciatica etc. So you may want to see an orthopedic pain specialist that can tell you what is going and help you with the latest treatments and exercise therapies available. Consider Stem Cell therapy to help as well. Regenexx.Com
