oday as promised, we’re going to talk about some treatments for osteoarthritis of the knee. You will know you have osteoarthritis of the knee, particularly if the knee is stiff in the morning. You have decreased range of motion. You may have some redness around the knee. It may be warm and you can have some swelling. If you have these symptoms, then you may have osteoarthritis. And if you do, you can always try an anti-inflammatory medication like ale or ibuprofen.
If you don’t have a problem with that, you can also try having a cortisol injection and we can talk about those at another, uh, video later. Or you can talk about visco supplementation and that’s when we put a medicine in the knee joint that helps to rebuild the cartilage that we talk about gets thin with osteoarthritis and it helps with pain.
