I have an elderly friend who has severe arthritis
in her knee. She would like to know what type of injections are given to
For degenerative arthritis (osteoarthritis), cortisone injections and Synvisc or Hyalgan are given. For inflammatory arthritis (such as rheumatoid arthritis), cortisone injections are given.
Thank you for your question.
