Did you see my exchange with Raylene below? She recommended Synvisc injections. This is a substance that restores lubrication in the knee joints and cartilage. As I understand it, this treatment is an alternative to surgery, and since most orthopedists are surgeons they don't normally prescribe it. But you should ask around to find a specialist with a non-surgical approach. Those who practice sports medicine might know, or your family doctor. As for Arthro-7, I haven't heard of it. Is it something you take orally? By prescription? Generally, oral products aren't as effective as injections, but I've had pretty good luck with Glucosamine sulfate. Have been taking it for a couple of months, and the pain in my knee has lessened. It's supposed to help restore cartilage. My general advice is to look for a product that helps restore and lubricate tissue rather than just mask the pain. have you done an Internet search on Arthro 7?
