Are Synvisc-One Injections Right For Me?
Any adult with osteoarthritis of the knee could be a candidate. Your healthcare provider should not inject Synvisc-One if you have any active infection inside the joint or skin diseases near the injection site. You shouldn't take Synvisc-One if you are allergic to its main ingredient, hyaluronan.
What Are Synvisc-One Injections Made From?
Synvisc-One Injections are made from a gel-like substance called hyaluronan, which occurs naturally in the body. The highest concentrations of hyaluronan are found in the joints. Synvisc-One is made from hyaluronan found in chicken combs.
What To Expect During Synvisc-One Injections?
Synvisc-One is injected with a needle into the space around your knee. The medication should be given by a trained healthcare professional, and the procedure only takes a few minutes. Your provider may give you a bit of numbing medication in your knee before the shot or use a cream to numb the skin. Most patients tolerate the injection well.
How Long Will Synvisc-One Injections Last?
Most patients receive about six months of pain relief and lubrication from one injection. It can take up to a month after the injection to begin to notice pain relief.
Activity After Synvisc-One Injections
Your healthcare provider will recommend light activities for a few days after your injection. Avoid high-impact exercises like tennis and jogging for at least 48 hours. Ask your provider for more information about safe activities.
