I have moderate to severe osteoarthritis in left knee. It had gotten so stiff and painful I could not bear to bend it to walk and had to cut out walking for exercise and spend a lot of time icing and heating my knee---prescription meds were not working. I had the third shot today. People are saying how painful they are; I was told that they do get a little more painful with each one and that ha ... Show Full Comment

I have had the shots 4 times over 3 years in the right knee, after 2 arthrascopic surgeries. I only just had the 1 set of shots in the left knee and am not feeling much comfort even after 2 months. I am resorting to wearing a brace more & more, plus use of a cane on the bad days.

This has been a good product for me. I have had 3 treatments so far and plan to continue until I an ready to have my knees replaced. I am in the process of losing my last 50# and this makes my exercise tolerable. I also work and now I can stand being on my feet for longer periods of time. It doesn't take away all my pain and stiffness but It does take it to the level that allows me to mos ... Show Full Comment
