A friend is getting the Hyalgen injections with no physical therapy involved prior to the injections or afterward !
I suppose it all depends on the injury, it could be that the knee just needs to rest, or walking on it is enough - if that's even going on, or could be for various reasons. I guess the only person who would really know would be the doctor... especially without a knowledge of the type of injury involved.
Perhaps they need the knees and surrounding muscles totally relaxed for maximum effect of the injections. Like any injection, the more the muscle is relaxed, the less sore the area is afterwards. Perhaps this question is best answered by the doctor administering the shots?
