Will Physical Therapy improve a Knee that has little to no Cartilage left?

Old Knee injury has led to 4 Arthroscopes over the years. Recent MRI results shows: Anterior Horn Diminutive, ACL Diminutive, Stable Chondral degeneration grade 1, grade 2 Medial Joint, Chondral thinning grade 2 and grade 3 posterior aspect Lateral Tibial Plateau, Patchy Bone Marrow Edema in Lateral Femoral Condyle, Small joint effusion with synovitis, joint effusion Patella, Chondral degeneration Patella, Trochlear Groove Cartilage Grade 2, some edematous medial and posterior capsules, tendinopathy.
I have sharp pain with every step I take, and the knee gets worse with activity. How can P/T help with this?
