Avatar f tn Hi, The most prevalent form of arthritis is osteo-arthritis. The knee is the most commonly affected joint, followed by the hand and hip. In a study of 697 females >65 years old, knee arthritis occurred in 30%, hand arthritis in 15%, and hip arthritis in 8% (*). Orthovisc injections are synthetic material composed of Hyaluronic acid which increases the viscosity inside the joint cavity, thus decreasing the symptoms. They are not dangerous and have been tried for a quite long time.

691233 tn?1228734020 Sometimes I can't step down without a sharp pain in my lower back. I get hip pain sometimes as well. My mother and uncle have severe spine problems as well. Here are my questions: Can this be genetic? What is wrong with me and what can be done about it? I am looking for something more permanent than all these temporary fixes that hardly work and only last 1-3 days if that. My quality of life is in the toilet. I can't lift or bend without paying a steep price for the next few days.
