In brief: Symptom relief

There's no way to get rid of osteoarthritis completely (unless you get a knee replacement).
Things help with the pain and symptom control: tylenol, (acetaminophen) ibuprofen, daily exercise, physical therapy, supplements like glucosamine and chondroitin also could help (but don't get gouged with expensive "arthritis pills" - the other things i mentioned are cheap & can often work much better). Best of luck!

Supplements maybe helpful in certain patients but those vary from patient to patient. Thee are no cures for this type of arthritis.
