Suggest treatment for knee joint pain

I need help sir my mother is suffering from knee joint pain. Her report says - Bilateral tibiofemoral and patello femoral compartmental joint spaces appear reduced. Bilateral patellar beaking and tibial spiking is noted. Osteophytes are seen at bilateral tibial and left femoral condyles. I didnt understood whats the problem. we were doing aayurvedic treatment since 2months. This repost is taken after treatment. Before starting that treatment the old report was - There is juxta articular osteopenia. The articular margin reveal evidence of osteophytic changes. The medial compartment of the tibiofemoral joint spaces are reduced. Impression: Osteo-Arthritis Bilateral Knee Joints. I want to know, whether any improvement is there comparing to the old report, as we dont understand the medical terms. So shall we continue the treatment. Please help and advice.....

Hello,

As per your history, it may be due to osteoarthritis.

For pain you can take tablet acetaminophen.

For further assessment you may require X Ray and MRI of knee after orthopedician consultation.

Use knee cap.

Avoid squatting and forward bending.

Take proper rest.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician
