Viscosupplementation Knee Injection
If you have knee joint pain caused by osteoarthritis, Medici Spine & Pain has treatment options that will give you relief and improve your quality of life. One non-invasive treatment for knee joint pain is viscosupplementation. It delivers hyaluronic acid to the joints to aid in lubrication and reduce friction for improved function and reduced pain. If you suffer from osteoarthritis in your knees and want to explore all the options to give you more mobility and less pain, we offer viscosupplementation and other treatments at our clinics in the Atlanta metro area.
The knee joints are one of the most common areas of osteoarthritis pain, impacting mobility and comfort for many people. One of the factors that impact the level of pain is the synovial fluid that protects the joints, which contains hyaluronic acid. As the body ages, it makes less hyaluronic acid, and this can affect the joints and other tissues. Viscosupplementation delivers hyaluronic acid to the knee joint to improve lubrication and replace lost natural hyaluronic acid. This often results in less pain and improved mobility in those with osteoarthritis.
Hyaluronic Acid Injections for Knee Arthritis
Viscosupplementation may be recommended as part of a treatment plan to control chronic knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. While there is not a cure for arthritis, reducing friction and improving movement in the knee can help limit pain and increase mobility. Viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid injections into the knee can be effective for some patients who have not responded to other treatments. In most cases, a series of injections are completed over several weeks to increase hyaluronic acid levels in the synovial fluid. Over a few months, patients can begin to experience less pain and better mobility with this and other treatments we offer at Medici Spine & Pain for osteoarthritis in the knee joint.
