This is the 10th set of injections I have had. I am thrilled that for nearly the entire six months between treatments I am pretty much pain free.

I follow the instructions to not do any heavy activity for the first 48 hrs following each injection and have not had a problem.

Well, this is my second go-round of getting the injections. I have a very bad problem with my kneecap. It has junk under it and it is worn down on the sides from playing volleyball for many years. So, I have athritis in my knee, also. I have had my knee scoped and that lasted about 1 year. So, my doctor suggested the injections because he did not want to do surgery again that soon. My first set of ... Show Full Comment

I have had osteoarthritis since 1994 and the overall left knee pain and the spurs "catching" was common especially in cold weather. It has been one month since the last injection and the odd headaches are all but gone. All knee pain symptoms gone and the knee feels turgid enough for exercise to ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had arthriscopic surgery 11 weeks ago and was still experiencing pain and having trouble walking. I just had my first injection yesterday and can truly say I have felt relief. Kind of nerveous after reading others reviews about the pain from the second and third injections but if it helps me walk pain free it is well worth it. So far so good
