I have been getting these injections for about 3 years now and I love them!!!

I would recommend this to anyone who has severe knee pain. I can enjoy outdoor activities with my family again. :O)

On second round of injections now. First round lasted 6-7 months. The injections were not bad the first time - pain 10-15 seconds per. First injection during current round was the same. The injection this morning was dreadful - still in pain 8 hours later. It's still worth it if I can put off a total knee replacement for a few more years.

Have had only one injection - of Orthovisc after having synvisc shots that didn't work. The rubing of the joint is better, but it now hurts to the side of the knee.
