Hello Dear,
Degenerative changes resembling hemophilic arthropathy may be a complication of synovial hemangioma in the knee.
You should consult an orthopedic physician and again go in for the MRI and x-ray as  these findings were present long time back, the present state should be known before any medication is started.

Hello Dear,

You should go in for Physical therapy such as hydrotherapy, massage, and hot/cold therapy.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a treatment in which a painless electrical current is sent to specific nerves through electrode patches that are placed on the skin. The mild electrical current generates heat that serves to relieve stiffness, improve mobility, and relieve pain
Treatment methods should be focused on pain relief and maintaining quality of life.Although slow, usually these conservative treatments relieve pain.The data regarding diasonics is inconclusive ,you should consult your physicaian regarding it.

The therapeutic aspect of a walk in tub is too a ground of appreciation. Here the whirlpool action serves as a hydraulic massager, relaxing and soothing further. Also, the soaking feature can be well utilized by patients of arthritis and muscular pains. Now all those dependents, which always wanted to avail a refreshing bath, but failed due to disabilities, can enjoy the freedom with walk in tub. Ellas bubbles has the premier walk in tub with 10 hydrotherapy massages for you body
The whirlpool bathtub is also a favorite feature of homes with senior citizens.  The whirlpool jets can help ease arthritis pain and the aches and pains that come from aging.  For many elderly people, the corner whirlpool bath tub is an essential therapeutic device.
