My mother is 63yrs and has terrible arthiritis, sometimes her left knee locks when she is sitting down and is not able to walk and battles until her leg stretches and she is in serious pain.
No, cyclobenzaprine won't really be useful for osteoarthritis.
Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant. It works by blocking nerve impulses (or pain sensations) that are sent to your brain.
Cyclobenzaprine is used together with rest and physical therapy to treat skeletal muscle conditions such as pain or injury.
