Can I exercise after taking Hylan G-F 20?

You should not exercise for 48 hours after you get a shot of Hylan G-F 20 (brand name Synvisc-One) into a joint. Instead, rest the joint for that amount of time to help make the treatment as effective as possible.

Hylan G-F 20 is a type of treatment called viscosupplementation. It involves an injection of lubricating substances into a joint affected by osteoarthritis. The relief from this treatment generally lasts longer than that from steroid injections. If you have questions or concerns about treatment options for osteoarthritis, talk with your doctor.
