The Patient Journey

Sharron is a wonderful advocate for the benefits of an active, balanced lifestyle – combining her love of exercise, with a busy family life. In her own fitness regime, as well as working with clients online and one-to-one, Sharron promotes exercise programmes that encourage mobility, strength and confidence.

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

Sharron says:

“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”.
