Re: Orthovisc injections, any succcess stories? [lyla]

Sorry intended to reply to the OP.

I've had synvisc injections a total of 5 times (3 in one knee and 2 in the other).

The least effective round gave me about a year of pain relief. All the other rounds have provided 2 or more years of relief.

I was running about 2,000 to 3,000 miles a year in the early years and am now running about 1,500 miles a year. The lower mileage isn't related to knee pain in any way.

Here (canada) my coverage treated these injections the same as orthotics for reimbursement.

My MD suggested that we should keep up these treatments as required since knee replacement basically takes running out of the equation.
