Osteoarthritis of both knees. Took so many glucosamin but did not improve. Then got steroid injection, still the same. no improvement, was given nsaids but didnt work. Went for Sync visc injection, improved for awhile. In between went for acupuncture, massages. swimming, exercises and physical therapy, still pains and soreness. Doctor strongly advised knee replacements but I was not ready for any surgery. Recently went for 10 shots (5 in each knee) of supartz (rooster comb). Its been almost one

month and I stillhave not experience any improvement. Ar the moment Im doing tens (electric stimulation and physical rherapy (3 time a week), but Im still having pain on both knees. What shall I do next.
