Kissing Spine-Pain Management

My 12-year Thoroughbred mare was recently diagnosed with Kissing Spine. I'm currently researching several options for long-term pain management to replace bute. In addition to cortisone injections and a lot of long and low work to develop her top line and core muscles, I've looked at using Previcoxx. I have also considered adding a joint health supplement such as Cosequin or Smartpak's SmartFlex. There is also an herbal anti-inflammatory called Devil's Claw. Just wondering if anyone has used any of these products or has any insight on prescription versus supplements for long-term pain management. Just as a side note, she will not be returning to a heavy work load, probably just some light trail riding, if she is sound and not sore.
