Thanks for writing to us.
Continuous pain killers and anti inflammatory drugs are needed to control the inflammation. Physiotherapy is advised only after the pain has subsided. Steroid injections might be helpful. Chronic infection like TB needs to be ruled out.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
