Pain: In addition to the treatments recommended by your physician - acupuncture, Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) and Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) may be helpful. Discuss with your doctor. Take care.

Varies: NSAIDs, Tylenol (acetaminophen) based products, and nutritional supplements with chondroitan and keratin sulfate are the typical oral things used to varying degrees of success. Visco supplementation involves the injection of a lubricant into the knee which can sometimes give good relief for months at a time. I would not hesitate to discuss with orthopedic surgeon or rheumatologist.
