Will Instaflex provide any relief for knee pain?

I am considering Instaflex for relief of knee pain. The cartilage is worn and described as "bone on bone" in the joint. I am not in a position to have a knee replacement at the present time. Will instaflex provide any relief? I use Voltaren Gel on the knee and usually water therapy which is currently on hold due to my schedule.

any suggestions?

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern look the knee is very fragile joint and highly vulnerable to injury and age related changes like "Osteoporosis" all the analgesic drugs are same in effects some are light and some are potent only matter is correcting the underlying cause of pain, try not to bend the knee joint keep the joint in 45 degree position this care can minimize the pain to the great extent, hope you can understand this take care and have nice day,
