THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT WORK! I just finished the full series of injections...I honestly believe that my knees are in worse pain than they were when we started the injections. To me, it was like trying to put grease into a ball-joint that is totally shot, it just causes more harm than it does good.

I had my first injection Monday, went exercising Tuesday and am feeling no pain today. It did not hurt to get the shot and only a little pain on the side of my knee. I am hoping this will help me until I HAVE to get surgery.

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
