Hi there!

Synvisc usually starts acting in a few days / weeks. If you haven’t experienced relief so far, other likely causes of the symptoms such as inflammation, injuries would need to be considered. If you do not notice any improvement over the next couple of weeks, you may consider a review by your orthopedician for suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
