See orthopedist: An experienced orthopedic surgeon can guide appropriate therapeutic directions. You might start with injections, such as cortisone, and/ or hyaluronic acid. Surgery could be arthroscopic, but perhaps open. Physical therapy is a terrific tool for rehabilitation. Discuss these steps with the specialist.
