I am 45 yrs old and have been getting Orthovisc (and sometimes Synvisc) shots for over 10+ years with EXCELLENT results. The effectiveness of a shot series lasts approx 1.5 years. To date I have not had any side effects other than tenderness at the shot site which is helped by 1-2 days of on\off icing (2-3 times\day).
