I took Glucosamine Chondrotin for many years…years ago..mainly because I have osteoporosis. I really don’t know if it helped with the occasional pain I had here and there. I don’t have pain now but I have been taking Omega 3 daily along with other supplements. This is just to keep inflammation away and I also eat an anti inflammatory diet. It must be working because at nearly 82 I generally am pain free and take no medications.
Some people swear by Glucosamine or Chondrotin or a combo of both. I walk daily and go to the gym three time a week. The last thing I want is surgery of any sort so I try to keep my joints supple by being active and having a good diet. I do know that a CBD balm helped when I had butt pain.
Try the anti inflammatory diet route and maybe a fish oil or omega supplement. Perhaps a soft knee brace would help…many are available on Amazon…for days that are painful….helps with stability…Above all, avoid surgery if possible. Lidocaine patches might help with pain also.
I try to avoid ibuprofen because it is Ototoxic and I already have a hearing loss.
It may take a couple of months to see an effect with diet or fish oils but I bet you will see an improvement. Good luck.
