The Patient Journey
Naturally, Sharron, who has just turned 60, has encountered injuries along the way and feels that her earlier intensive training has certainly taken its toll on her joints. Over the years, the stiffness and pain in her right knee has increased to grade 4 arthritis, especially after snapping her ACL and reconstruction surgery whilst ﬁlming Gladiators. Frustratingly, it aﬀects her ability to exercise comfortably and enjoy her day-to-day activities.
So, she was delighted when her orthopaedic consultant, Professor Paul Lee from MSK Doctors, said she could be eligible for a pioneering and non-invasive treatment for knee osteoarthritis which could oﬀer long lasting pain relief and could delay the need for surgery. Since having the single dose injection in September 2022, Sharron’s recovery has been swift and positive.
Almost immediately, she reported that she was now moving with reduced pain and gained an increased range which was also conﬁrmed on a subsequent visit to see Dr. Lee.
I couldn’t believe how quick the procedure was, with very little discomfort and limited downtime. I was able to drive immediately. Pain can be really draining emotionally. Now, thanks to Arthrosamid®, I feel more able to do the things I love with less pain of it. I’m very glad I gave it a try.
“I’ve had more than 40 years of training, and competed in the world’s biggest competition, and so I know what’s required to help maintain a healthy body and mind. Throughout my life I’ve continued to fuel my passion for health and ﬁtness – with a varied programme including weight training, strength and conditioning, cycling, horse riding and dog walking. A few years back I also suﬀered a serious accident. Recovery was slow and despite returning to full ﬁtness, I continued to have problems with stiffness and pain in my right knee. Being oﬀered this injection has been great, as much for my mental wellbeing as physically - as sport and ﬁtness is such an important part of my life. I couldn’t believe how quick the procedure was, with very little discomfort and limited downtime. I was able to drive immediately. Pain can be really draining emotionally. Now, thanks to Arthrosamid®, I feel more able to do the things I love with less pain of it. I’m very glad I gave it a try”.
