    I have osteoarthritis in my knees. I got one shot, and needed another right at the 6 month mark. That second shot lasted a year. The third shot lasted 3 years. Very happy with the outcome! The pain before was so severe I avoided walking up stairs at all cost, felt like an old person before my time.
