Pain medications (analgesics) and anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs - Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) can be used if required to help manage your arthritis pain. However, these medications will not cure your osteoarthritis; they will merely treat your symptoms.
These medications aren't recommended for everyone or for long term use, as pain medications can cause liver damage, and NSAIDs can cause gastrointestinal difficulties (such as upset stomach, diarrhea, ulcers and intestinal bleeding). They can also trigger other serious side effects, and even inhibit the body's natural ability to heal itself.
COX-2 Inhibitors (prescription NSAIDs like Celebrex, Bextra or Vioxx) block the COX-2 enzyme involved with prostaglandin production responsible for inflammation have been linked with risks of heart attack, stroke and in some cases death. The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) asked manufacturers to withdraw some COX-2 Inhibitors (Vioxx and Bextra) from the market as well as put a big black warning label on the packaging outlining the risks involved with use (Celebrex).
Cysts can be treated by removing extra fluid from the knee using a syringe or seeing your physician to investigate injections or topical medications. Steroid injections are occasionally used for rheumatoid arthritis, but rarely for osteoarthritis.
Some health professionals have also recommended natural supplements such as Glucosamine, MSM, Chondritin, Capsaicin, Devil's Claw, or Yucca Leaf to help relieve pain and/or strengthen your tissues. Hyaluronic Acid (Hyalgan) injections have also had a lot of success.
As mentioned above, the long term use of pain and anti-inflammatory medications can cause damage to organs in your body. If your knee pain persists, it may be wise to consider conservative treatments in treating your knee OA symptoms.
Treat your knee with natural therapies to help reduce knee pain and/or slow the deterioration of soft tissue (muscles,tendons,ligaments,cartilage) in the knee. Use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack if you are experiencing pain and/or inflammation to quickly reduce swelling and swelling induced pain. Once inflammation has been reduced, we recommend the use of a Knee TShellz Wrap®.
