Arthritis of the knee cap

Posted by @karencar, Tue, Mar 20 10:02am

Can I expect a good treatment for arthritis of the knee cap other than knee replacement on the next few years? Now pain is controlled with Tylenol and ice but in order to keep golfing I think I am going to need to add Celebrex or Ibuprofen. I heard you can add Ibuprofen about 4 hours after taking the 8hour Tylenol. Is that right?

Hello @kaencar, your question caught my eye as one who also suffers from forms of arthritis and a bad right knee that I had cartilage removed from when I was in my 30s. The older I get the more it bothers me so I've often thought about knee replacement. I was able to find some interesting work on new types of treatment being done by Mayo Clinic.

Innovations in knee care: Women and knee arthritis; controlling pain; partial replacement:

Also from the Cleveland Clinic — What's New in Arthritis Treatment:

Hope this helps.

Thank you. Glad to hear that it looks like I can add Ibuprofen to my Tylenol at least short term.
