Treatment Treatments will vary, depending upon what exactly is causing knee pain. Medications may prescribe medications to help relieve pain and to treat underlying conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout. Therapy Strengthening the muscles around knee will make it more stable. May recommend physical therapy or different types of strengthening exercises based on the specific condition that is causing pain. If are physically active or practice a sport, may need exercises to correct movement patterns that may be affecting knees and to establish good technique during sport or activity. Exercises to improve flexibility and balance also are important. Arch supports, sometimes with wedges on one side of the heel, can help to shift pressure away from the side of the knee most affected by osteoarthritis. In certain conditions, different types of braces may be used to help protect and support the knee joint. Injections In some cases, may suggest injecting medications or other substances directly into joint. Examples include: Corticosteroids. Injections of a corticosteroid drug into knee joint may help reduce the symptoms of an arthritis flare and provide pain relief that may last a few months. These injections aren't effective in all cases. Hyaluronic acid. A thick fluid, similar to the fluid that naturally lubricates joints, hyaluronic acid can be injected into knee to improve mobility and ease pain. Although study results have been mixed about the effectiveness of this treatment, relief from one or a series of shots may last as long as six months. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP contains a concentration of many different growth factors that appear to reduce inflammation and promote healing. These types of injections tend to work better in people whose knee pain is caused by tendon tears, sprains or injury.
