In general, medications are not frequently used to treat pes anserine bursitis. In cases where pharmacologic therapy may be warranted to help alleviate symptoms, the addition of an over-the-counter or prescribed anti-inflammatory medication, such as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), may be indicated. In addition, injection of a local anesthetic, with or without a corticosteroid, may be helpful.
