In brief: Arthritis option
Your injectable options for knee arthritis include corticosteroids or hylaluronic acid.
Most often for arthritis pain cortisone is the first line injectable option. If this is not an option for you or it has failed to relieve your pain, supartz is one of several brand name hyaluronic acid injectables that can be given every 6months and can be effective. It can take up to 6 weeks to take effect.
