In brief: Yes

Lortab (hydrocodone mixed with acetaminophen) is a narcotic pain reliever. It may be used for severe cases of knee pain or in acute injuries.
Most mild to moderate cases could be treated with non-narcotic agents. Injections can be really helpful in some cases. In severe cases, surgery can address the issue.
