There are some non-operative measures that you can take for arthritis
in your knee joint that you might want to try before having a knee repalcement as you are very young for this type of operation. If you are over weight, loosing weight will often help you symptoms. Physiotherapy
can also help with range of motion and strenthening. An anti-inflammatory medication taken regularly such as ibuprofen
may be of benefit. Lastly some patients find relief with a custom offloading knee brace
. These cost around $2000 if you don't have health benefits.
