Re: [RC] Hyaluronic Acid - Suzi Maiorisi

Synvisc is the brand name of one of the injectable Hyaluronic acids available - it?s the original and most commonly used (I do medical transcription for orthopedics and rehab MD's)  I imagine there's a dose of it in my future, too, as the surgery on my right knee removed a 1/2 dollar size chunk of cartilage down to the bone that was dislodged in there this summer.  My ex has had it several times and did well with his injections and was happy with the results.

Is anyone here taking HA? How much and in what form?

Well, I'm using it for my knees, and boy, am I sold on the stuff!  I get injections in both knees every six months...a series of 3, one week apart.  I have chondromalacea (sp?), which is arthritis/roughening of the cartiledge on the backs of both kneecaps, worst in the left knee, which makes it very painful to go up/down stairs, ride (esp. at a walk for any legth of time), etc.  I've been on this stuff for about a year, and it makes all the difference in the world.  My knees are not killing me for 2 weeks after a 50 now, or for several days after a 20 mi. conditioning ride (basically, till the next one LOL).  I also have a torn meniscus in the left knee...doesn't help that much.
