Been on Synvisc for about 3 years. It has reduced knee pain to a tolerable level. For my first 2 years, I had an injection every 6 months. I was able to go a year on the last Synvisc shots. I am 68 and an avid karate practitioner and distance swimmer.

I have OA in my knee. Ive tried NSAIDs, Accupuncture (did nothing), TENS (helpful and recommended), LED lights (did nothing), Cortisone (Great for 3 to 4 weeks only), and now Synvisc One. This is day 2 from my 1st shot and my pain has been reduced 80% to 90%. The shot was not bad, just pressure and only towards the final CCs did it feel somewhat uncomfortable. But not so bad really, on a scale of ... Show Full Comment

But an hour later you will feel it. I take an anti inflamatory 20 mins before the shot to reduce swelling, which is what causes the pain. I put ice packs on immediately after the shot. I go straigh ... Show Full Comment

I can't really judge the effectiveness yet - I just got my 1st shot today. I just wanted people to know that it was far easier than you think. My doc numbed the area first and the shot was relatively pain free - I could feel the pressure from the fluid being injected and it was a bit uncomfortable, but didn't last long at all. I'm a 66 year old woman and pretty much terrified of med ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been diagnosed with a meniscus tear as well as osteoarthritis in my knee. Cortisone shots were effective but not long lasting. Dr. suggested SynVisc. My insurance approved 3 injection over 3 weeks. Last injection was Dec. 5, 2014 and I have been relatively pain free and much more mobile since. I am approaching the 6 month point, the time this material is expected to give relief. So fa ... Show Full Comment
