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.

    I have cancer

    34
    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
