Holistic and noninvasive, viscosupplementation injections are a popular option for patients suffering with osteoarthritis and hoping to alleviate its associated pain without surgery or prescription medications.
Making up a significant percentage of disability cases here in the US, osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease, often occurring in the knee, in which cartilage erodes and lubricating fluid disappears. This in turn creates pressure and friction, which results in pain and sometimes eventual loss of mobility for the sufferer.
Viscosupplementation treatments consist of injections of hyaluronic acid to replace that lost fluid and thus relieve osteoarthritis pain. Further, these injections may even stimulate the body’s production of new hyaluronic acid to slow the progression of the disease and ultimately get patients back on the path to a more rewarding lifestyle.SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION
