Dear sir, the cartilage lessons are minimal only. No need of intervention. If glucosamine is not useful, take collagen supplements available in the market. Regards.

Use physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation exercise regularly to avoid and reduce further damage to cartilage. Like hams and quadriceps, SLR exercises on regular basis and take alovera, guggal/suth, twin stem sachet, salakhi to improve strength and mobility to joint.
