I'm in the process of going to PT for left knee pain. MRI showed no tears. It took awhile, but I do feel better. I have gone 7 out of the 12. Don't know if this has been mentioned, my knee was slightly swollen and always bothering me.
I tried Synvisc, but it didn't work for me because I didn't have enough cartilage left in my knee for it to bind to. The company actually gives a money back guarantee and I did get my money back. Cortisone never worked for me either, but I have heard good results from others! Good luck with making a choice, hope your insurance covers it

The Osteopath who checked my injured knee quite some time ago mentioned these injections, and said I could look forward, in this orsder, to treatment for my knees: 1 - cortosone inject - works to reduce pain for about a month 2 - cushioning injection (very expensive and not covered by all insurance policies) lasts for about 6 months, and 3 - when all else leaves me in too much pain, knee replacement
