, Life style changes, glucosamine
Hi, Thanks for using HCM.
I went through the query and understood your concern.
Tab Zorvolex is a NSAID (non steroidal anti inflammatory drug) most commonly used to relieve pain. This has similar effect as of other anti inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen
etc. This drug can reduce pain, inflammation as well as reduce high body temperature to normal.
Arthritis are of many tipes. The most common cause which is age, weight and life style related is osteoarthritis
. There will be pain initially and with time due to inflammation swelling around knee joint, restricted movement can develop.
The main treatment for this cause is NSAID for pain and inflammation and life style modifications like reducing weight, daily mild exercises. Hot fomentation, topical analgesic
gel and few drugs like glucosamine sulfate may be helpful. This measures will help you in recovery.
If severe pain
then steroid will be helpful, but the steroid cannot be continued on daily basis because of side effects.
In severe cases of arthritis knee replacement
can be done where in the person will be relieved of all the symptoms.
For the confirmation opn diagnosis, you can consult your doctor once for examination once.
I hope these answers have been both informative and helpful for you. If you have any additional concerns I would be happy to address them.
Wish you good health.
