Supplements Q&A

What are supplements?

Nutritional supplements are pills, capsules, liquids, or powders that contain vitamins, minerals, and anti-inflammatory formulations. A healthy diet can restore your body to balance and reduce the risk of common health problems. 

Many Americans eat a diet that lacks the nutrients for optimal joint health. The team at Reflex Knee Specialists has done rigorous research to find supplements that help the joints and cartilage while combating inflammation. 

If chronic knee pain interferes with your ability to work, exercise, or do other activities, nutritional supplements can support your healing.

When should I consider supplements for knee pain?

Consider supplements for knee pain if you experience:

  • Swelling and stiffness
  • Weakness or instability
  • Popping or crunching noises
  • Pain following activity

You might also be a candidate for nutritional supplements if it’s painful to fully straighten or bend your knee.

What types of supplements can help relieve knee pain?

The team at Reflex Knee Specialists uses several types of supplements to relieve knee pain and improve joint health. Depending on your age, the severity of your symptoms, and your health history, your provider might recommend:

Anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are nutrients commonly found in fish oil. Omega-3 fatty acid supplements support healthy blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation, and help your body respond to stress.

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 helps your body absorb more calcium and phosphorus –– two nutrients necessary for strong and healthy bones. Vitamin D3 also plays a crucial role in the health of your immune system.


Calcium helps your bones stay strong and healthy. Regularly taking a calcium supplement can combat the body’s natural aging process and reduce your risk of fractures.

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)

MSM is a natural compound found inside all living things. It plays a vital role in promoting healthy joint and tissue function. What’s more, MSM is thought to relieve pain and inflammation.


Glucosamine chondroitin

Glucosamine chondroitin promotes healthy cartilage formation. It also strengthens and protects the cartilage around your knee joint, improving your range of motion.



Multivitamins combine core minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants to offer broad-spectrum nutritional support. Your Reflex Knee Specialists provider can prescribe a multivitamin that supports optimal health.
