What Is The Best Treatment For Osteoarthritis Of The Knees?

I have osteoarthritis of the knee medium and 25 years ago had two operations for a smashed patella. Surgeon says I do not need a knee replacement but for 8 months have had pain in my thigh and leg and sometimes limp and in pain walking. Do exercises and have taken anti-inflammatory meds and Panadeine osteo, turmeric, glucosamine, homeopathics but nothing works?

The things you can do is, quadriceps tendon strengthening exercises and nutritional supplement to reduce the symptoms.

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