Synvisc 1
It helped me within 24 hours. In less than a month, I had no pain. It has been a year with no pain. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. I saw a doctor at Kerlan and Jobe, the So. CA orthopedic clinic that does all the professional athletes. I figured that they wouldn't use crappy doctors for multi-million dollar athletes.
