Orthovisc Injections


Hello I'm 33 and been having knee problems for nearly a year and was diagnosed with osteoarthritis. Left leg is much worse. Can't squat or walk(up/down)stairs. Ortho says I'm young to be having these problems. Did rehab for 9 months now with an arthroscopy in the middle.

Overall the surgery probably helped out about 10-15percent. Anyway, Orthovisc injections have been offered to me and i've been a bit hesitant to try them. Has anybody on here had success with this treatment. I'm ready to try this until new procedures come along.


I believe this treatment (Hyaluronic acid injections) has had good reviews & they use it on race horses too. I seem to remember BBB (Bushido Bad Boy) had used something simmilar to good effect.
