Knee Injection therapy
Knee Injection Therapy, also called viscosupplementation, is a procedure involving the injection of a gel-like substance (Hyaluronan) into your knee joint. Hyaluronan is a natural component in human tissue that is important to the body’s flexibility and mobility.
Extensive research shows that Hyaluronan injections are highly effective in alleviating pain associated with chronic knee pain. The injections work to supplement the viscous properties of synovial fluid of the knee, restoring elasticity, lubrication and mobility of the affected joint.
Hyaluronan injections are safe and minimally invasive, the benefits can last for several months, up to a year.
Hyaluronan injections can:
- Slow cartilage breakdown
- Allow increased activity with decreased knee pain
Accurate placement of the Hyaluronic injection is key to its success. Using fluoroscopy, our physicians precisely locate the area in your knee that will provide you with the best outcomes.
