Also referred to as “viscosupplementation.” These injectables are used specifically to treat knee pain associated with osteoarthritis.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring part of the fluid in your joint that helps lubricate and cushion. With osteoarthritis, your hyaluronic acid diminishes. There are many brands of viscosupplementation currently on the market. Our provider will decide what product is best for you based your care plan. Hyaluronic acid injections work as both a shock absorber and a lubricating agent in the joint, helping to aid in knee joint pain relief. Depending on the brand of injection used, treatments generally consist of a weekly injection over a 3-to-5 week period.
All of our HA products are injected in our office under ultrasound guidance.
Typically, these treatments provide pain relief for up to 30 weeks, although results may vary from patient-to-patient. Click the link below to learn more about just one of the many products we use in our clinic. www.genvisc850.com
