Avatar f tn Supartz is injected directly into the knee joint to restore the cushioning and lubricating properties of normal joint fluid. Both are approved for treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee in those who have failed to respond to simple painkillers, exercise or physical therapy. Supartz injections are typically given once a week for 5 weeks and I think you have taken it like this on both the occasions. Supartz is considered a treatment of therapy, not a drug.
Avatar n tn Hello! With osteoarthritis due to wear and tear and also due to past ligament injuries and unstable joint the best treatment is total knee replacement. You can try various NSAIDs to fight the pain. You can also try viscosupplementation or steroid injections. Talk with an orthopedician and explore various options before you consider total knee replacement. Take care!
Avatar f tn Hello!

My question today is related to my knees. my orthopedic surgeon and I have tried physical therapy, ice and heat therapy, anti inflammatories (which I'm unable to tolerate due to high blood pressure and severe gastrointestinal problems with them - also allergic to medicine in Aleve). A couple of weeks ago I elected to try a cortisone injection into the knee.
