If you are suffering from knee pain due to Osteoarthritis, there is a solution!
An innovation in pain relief, joint lubrication injections alleviate the symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee, restoring function and mobility.
In osteoarthritis, joint cartilage can deteriorate causing a decrease of joint lubrication, pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion. Joint lubrication treatments are injections of hyaluronate (viscosupplementation) which improve lubrication of the knee, reducing pain and improving flexibility. Hyaluronate is similar to the natural synovial joint fluid produced by the body. If your knee pain and symptoms have not been relieved by other treatments, you may be a candidate for joint lubrication injections.
Studies have determined that a series of hyaluronate joint lubricating injections can improve function and decrease pain for patients with mild to moderate osteoarthritis. With increased effectiveness over the course of the series, this treatment can reduce the need for joint replacement. This safe and long-lasting option for osteoarthritis knee pain relief is a naturally derived substance that does not interfere with the bloodstream or other medications.
