As we age, our body essentially deteriorates. This can cause pain in our joints and bones, and it can even cause damage to our cartilage. Aging shouldn’t mean you can’t live a happy pain-free life – you deserve to live life to the fullest. While medication and surgery are options, we’ve found that the healthiest and most efficient way to treat this pain is through using a natural lubricating fluid.
This natural lubricating fluid is injected into the knee joint and is called hyaluronic acid. (HA) is a key component of the joint fluid in healthy joints, but is found in lower concentrations in Osteoarthritic joints. By adding hyaluronic acid to the existing joint fluid of an Osteoarthritic knee, the goal is to:
-facilitate better knee movement
-stimulate the body to begin normal production of HA
Typical candidates for this non-surgical knee relief are people with knee osteoarthritis who have failed to improve with conservative treatments and wish to avoid total knee replacement surgery.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Following the first injection, patients are fitted with an offloading knee brace and the provider will discuss with you an at home program that includes gentle, progressive knee exercises.
