I was in an an auto accident 2 yrs ago and both knees made impact with dash. At first not much pain but now pain is chronic because of loss of cartlidge.Should I be taking something to help rebuild the cartlidge? And as the pain goes after working all day it's so bad I dont sleep at night and have tried Alieve, Advil, etc. but it wont help. Any advice?

Unfortunately nothing rebuilds cartilage that the regular person can afford. Stem cell therapy is being experimented with. I used hyaluronic acid shots in my knee for years before I got it replaced. It is awesome. Don't use cortisone shots. Cortisone shots tend to deteriorate the remainder of the joint space. Orthovisc is a series of 3 inj's. Expensive but what a relief!!!

Hello Fisherguy
I am in the same situation no cartlidge in both knees. My orthopedic doctor said I needed total knee replacements but due to my age (40) he didn't want to do them right away so I am receiving the orthovisc shots in my knees. They are given once a week for 3 weeks. The first time I received them it took me about 5 weeks to get relief but they worked,. I had about 6 months of pain relief and I had to have them again. My 2nd round worked better than the first set. I had a full year of pain relief I was in shock of how well they work.. I am now on my 3rd year of orthovisc shots and I highly recommend this for anyone with this situation. Orthovisc is made from rooster cones. And they worked for me...
