Knee Viscosupplementation

Improve knee function, reduce pain, and increase mobility so you can get back to living the life you desire.

What is Knee Viscosupplementation?

There are several forms of arthritis in the knee. But knee osteoarthritis has become common in the present generation, followed by inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid and gout. Knee stiffness, pain, and swelling are some of the symptoms of knee osteoarthritis. As it is a progressive, irreversible degenerative process, pain control is the only treatment goal. One such treatment is knee viscosupplementation.

The treatment of knee osteoarthritis using hyaluronic acid injections to improve the functions of the knee joint is called knee viscosupplementation. It is a method by which a small amount of hyaluronic acid is injected into your knee joint. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. The hyaluronic acid will improve the lubricating properties of the synovial fluid in your knee and reduce the pain from osteoarthritis. Viscosupplementation will not cure osteoarthritis. It will only improve the mobility of your knee and slows the progression of osteoarthritis.
