How Safe Is It Using The Synvisc Into The Knees?
You can take synvisc.
Thanks for posting your query.
SYNVISC is a viscosupplement injection that supplements the fluid in your knee to help lubricate and cushion the joint, and can provide up to six months of osteoarthritis knee pain relief with three injections.
There is as such no harm in taking synvisc but it has some side effects like
warmth, pain, stiffness, swelling, or puffiness where the medicine was injected;
muscle pain, trouble walking;
fever, chills, nausea;
numbness or tingly feeling;
tired feeling; or.
itching or skin irritation around the knee.
This may be the reason he is opposing it , but these are mild side effects not terrible one , so in my opinion you can take Synvisc One .
Synvisc-One is the same formulation as Synvisc . The only difference is that Synvisc-One is provided with one injection, compared to the three injections required for Synvisc. Both treatments can provide up to six months of osteoarthritis knee pain relief.
