Primary Outcome Measures:
  • WOMAC score [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The WOMAC (Westren Ontario and McMaster Universities) index is used to assess patients with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee using 24 parameters. It can be used to monitor the course of the disease or to determine the effectiveness of anti-rheumatic medications.

    Pain, Stiffness and Physical functionVisual analogue scale (VAS) may be used ranging from 0 to 10.



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • VAS satisfaction [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Visual Analoge Scale for satisfaction

  • Improvement [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentage of improvement

  • SAFETY [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Pain at infiltration site, ecchymosis, bleeding, paresthesias, skin infection, anaphilaxy, vasovagal reaction
