I have C.P. and and could walk before this shot. Now, I can not stand nor walk, the pain is a 13 on a 1-10 scale. I'm now paralized from waist down. My doctors can't do knee replacement because I have sleep apnea, this was supposed to help, 24 hrs after shot, I had pain up to my hip, I could not stand at all. what has happened? The doctor that gave me the shot will not return my calls or help...

Took the three shot routine. each shot exactly 7 days apart. Seemed to help for about 2-3 weeks, then noticed no improvement from previous condition.

Orthovisc has worked wonderfully for me. I could not be happier! I have had 4 knee shots for Osteoarthritis total over 4 years and I could not be more satisfied. My last set of 4 shots was nearly a year ago and my knee is still mostly Pain Free! Thank You OrthoVisc!
