Post-traumatic arthritis

I am doing some research for patients on post traumatic arthritis in the knee and would love some input. I am an Military Doctor(no residency) and am curious about the topic.

My question is primarily for young active patients. History of knee surgery(usually ACL reconstruction and/or partial menisectomy) over 5 years ago. Medial knee pain and swelling with and without exercise. Some radiological changes suggestive of degeneration.

I see 30 yo males and females with the above condition. Ideas are welcome and much appreciated as to how to keep these patients active. Thanks.

Very little you can do. Aggressive athletic activity is out. Tell them to lose weight and take fish oil and glucosamine. Relying on NSAIDs will accelerate the degenerative process. PT not terribly helpful.
