Had the synvic one injection and waited he five weeks before putting any real stress on the knee. Then resumed playing hockey. Synvic one worked for about 4 weeks now I am back to the same knee pain and swelling I had when I first got the injury. Not happy and not impressed after spending $440 on this useless piece of gel.

I am 32 years old with OA and am too young for a knee replacement. My ortho suggested Synvisc One. It has been 4 weeks since the shot and I have absolutely no change in my knee at all. If anything it may be worse. Still grinding and popping, still swollen, still really painful when I stand, and can't fully straighten my knee. I am very disappointed.

I am going to update this in a week, hopefully it will be a better ... Show Full Comment

I have OA and bursitis in both knees, repair of meniscus in L knee, excruciating pain in R knee, walking with cane for over 3 yrs.

L knee was not as bad. Had this done on 5/13/10, it's now 5/1 ... Show Full Comment

I lived with knee pain for years. I had the synvisc one shot and within a few weeks the pain is gone. I can climb and walk without any pain. I will go back for another when this one wears off I feel great.
