Your doctor may suggest medicines for pain relief including over-the-counter options such as paracetamol, anti-inflammatories and topical (applied to the skin) pain relief creams, or prescription medicines such as corticosteroids.[1,5]
For longer-acting pain relief up to 1 year, your doctor may recommend a viscosupplement.  Viscosupplements are a type of fluid that is injected directly into the knee to help lubricate and cushion the joint. Viscosupplements replace damaged synovial fluid to help relieve pain and improve joint function.
