Treatment Ratings

    Improved
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Physical Therapy, Viscosupplementation Injection

Cortisone stops the pain but only lasts 2 weeks & injections are 6 mos apart. 4 to 6 Tylenol 650 mg slow release per day helps a great deal with the pain but is just a bandaid. Have not found anything to replenish the cartilage. Recently started therapy and that helps.

Planning to try Collegan II. E- mail dreho8@aol.com
