Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Zaltoprofen is a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory drug (NSAID).
It helps to reduce the inflammation and pain.
It thus helps improve the disability and quality of life, until the causing condition settles down.. It will help knee pain too.
It is not a Disease Modifying Agent – it does not cure the condition directly.

You have to follow up with your Orthopaedician - for further assessment and assistance

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
