Viscosupplementation Treatment for Knee Arthritis

Viscosupplementation therapy, also known as knee gel injection therapy, offers a targeted approach to managing knee osteoarthritis (OA). While OA is primarily caused by the wear and tear of joint cartilage, a secondary factor contributing to the discomfort is the reduction in synovial fluid, which is essential for joint lubrication.

Synovial fluid is a natural, gel-like substance found in all joints, including the knees. It’s rich in hyaluronic acid, a key component that ensures smooth movement by lubricating the joints and providing cushioning.

By injecting hyaluronic acid directly into the knee joint, Viscosupplementation aims to restore the natural balance of the synovial fluid. This treatment can significantly improve joint mobility and reduce pain, though the duration of relief varies among individuals.

Maintain Optimum Levels of Synovial Fluid

How Does Viscosupplementation Therapy Work?

The primary objective of Viscosupplementation Therapy is to supplement the hyaluronic acid levels in the synovial fluid. As we age, the natural production of hyaluronic acid decreases, leading to reduced lubrication, which can exacerbate pain and stiffness in OA-affected joints.

By injecting hyaluronic acid directly into the knee joint, Viscosupplementation aims to restore the natural balance of the synovial fluid. This treatment can significantly improve joint mobility and reduce pain, though the duration of relief varies among individuals.

Minimally Invasive and Low-Risk Treatment for OA

Why Choose Viscosupplementation Injections aka Knee Injections?

A Suitable Alternative When NSAIDs Are Ineffective
Viscosupplementation injections come into play when routine Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) are unable to provide adequate pain relief, even after extended use at high doses. This therapy offers a more targeted approach to pain management in such scenarios.

Less Invasive with Notable Benefits
One of the key advantages of Viscosupplementation, or Knee Injection Therapy, is its simplicity and minimal invasiveness compared to surgical interventions for osteoarthritis. It’s a straightforward procedure that involves less recovery time and lower risk than most surgical options.

Ideal for Pain and Swelling Control, Surgery Postponement
These knee gel injections are not only effective in managing pain and swelling associated with osteoarthritis but also serve as a viable option for those who are not suitable candidates for surgery. Additionally, if you’re looking to delay surgery, Viscosupplementation can be a strategic choice. The therapy can be repeated every six months, depending on your individual response and medical advice, making it a flexible and patient-friendly option.

Why Worry? Its FDA-Approved!

Is Viscosupplementation Treatment Safe and Natural?

Absolutely! Viscosupplementation has been around since 1996 and is an FDA-approved treatment for knee pain. Viscosupplementation is just the injection of hyaluronic acid into your joints where your body is already producing it. This is to add to the existing synovial fluid as your body’s capacity to make it decreases with age.

A Few Jabs and… You Are Good!

How Many Viscosupplementation Injections Would I Need?

Typically, you will need one to three knee gel injections every six months. But, this will depend on your joint condition. Generally, the more injections you get, the more pain relief you will experience.
