Study results on this question have been mixed, with some suggesting possible benefit and some showing no benefit on cartilage protection: Glucosamine is one of the substances in your body that is used to build cartilage. The most common type of arthritis, osteoarthritis wears away the slick cartilage that covers the ends of your bones and helps joints move smoothly. Study results have been varied, partly because not all the studies have used the same type of glucosamine. And not all the studies included a placebo comparison, or ensured that neither the patient nor the researchers knew which pill was being administered. That said, glucosamine is relatively inexpensive and safe. If other treatments aren't helping, you might want to talk to your doctor about whether a trial of glucosamine is right for you. It may take up to four months before you see any pain relief. ...Read more
Looking for beachbody workout that doesn't stress knees. Are the modified steps in t25 safe for knee problems? Pls no vmo responses.
Not sure: First, I do not know what a vmo answer is. But i did review the t25 program. Exercise plans that are weight bearing on the knees will stress the knee at some point. If you can do the program outside the knee program and then modify the knee program where you can do it in a shallow pool you will significantly reduce the stress on your knees as the gravitational effect will be markedly reduced. ...Read more

If your joint is in-: -good condition, a menisectomy would be advised, even if borderline. This can slow down further degeneration & possibly avoid a replacement. Hyaluronic acid if the joint is bad & the only option is a replacement, if you are one of the people that get great results, you still may avoid a TKA. If successful they do need to be repeated over time. ...Read more
