Second-line treatments may be useful for some people with knee osteoarthritis (i.e., not everyone will need them). Multiple second-line treatments exist. But, regardless of choice, they should always be used alongside first-line treatments (i.e. you nee to continue to engage with education, exercise and weight management)
There is also a little cross-over with some first-line self-management. For example, use of assistive devices or a cold pack may be part of your self-management routine.
