OsteoArthritis vs Rheumatoid Arthritis

Simply put, osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and involves the wearing away of the cartilage that caps the bones in your joints. Meanwhile, in rheumatoid arthritis the synovial membrane that protects and lubricates your joints becomes inflamed, causing pain and swelling. Joint erosion may follow.

What to Expect After Your Prolozone Injection

The first 45-60 minutes after an injection you may feel a full sensation with some slushy noises in the joint. It is important to keep some motion in the joint for the first hour without any excessive stress on the joint.

Ice should be used on the injection site for 15 minutes during the first 48 hours at least 2-3 times depending on tenderness. Avoid use of over-the-counter NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), like ibuprofen, motrin, aleve, naproxen, mobic, aspirin, acetaminophen, etc., because they will counter-act the healing that is being promoted.

Most people experience some level of stability within the first 48 hours, having between a 20-80% reduction of pain in the joint, with improved range of motion. Over the first week some of the pain may come back in the joint; this is normal for the healing process. We usually follow up with a second injection within 7-14 days if needed.

If a third injection is needed we suggest waiting at least 3 weeks after the second injection though often this can be put off for much longer. This will vary by the severity and acuteness of your condition, as well as your ability to heal.

It is important to start on some exercises to improve the muscle tone. The affected joint generally has experienced a loss in range of motion and strength; the motion will be increased post-injection. Tenderness and swelling are a normal part of the healing process and can be sometimes flared up with the increased motion. Initially working on range of motion and then progressing to direct strengthening exercise is crucial to develop long-term stability in the knee.
