Any Non-Surgical Treatments for Hip/Knee Pain?

My mother is 76 and has KTS. Recently the pain has increased in her hip and knee but she is not a candidate for surgery due to risks with KTS patients. Has tried cortisone shots to both areas but they were not effective. Seeking any other options out there. Apparently also not a candidate for synvisk or rooster comb injections. Thanks for any help.



Ask about a lympahtic wrap, it may reduce fluid in the limb and pressure off the joints.
