Viscosupplementation Injections for Knee Pain

     If you have knee joint pain caused by osteoarthritis, Wesley Chapel Spine and Sports Medicine has treatment options that will give you relief and improve your quality of life. The knee joints are one of the most common areas of osteoarthritis pain, impacting mobility and comfort for many people. One of the factors that impact the level of pain is the synovial fluid that protects the joints, which contains hyaluronic acid. As the body ages, it makes less hyaluronic acid, and this can affect the joints and other tissues.

      One non-invasive treatment for knee joint pain we offer is Viscosupplementation. Viscosupplementation delivers hyaluronic acid to the knee joint to improve lubrication and replace lost natural hyaluronic acid. This often results in less pain and improved mobility in those with osteoarthritis.

      Viscosupplementation may be recommended as part of a treatment plan to control chronic knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. While there is not a cure for arthritis, reducing friction and improving movement in the knee can help limit pain and increase mobility. Viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid injections into the knee can be effective for some patients who have not responded to other treatments. In most cases, a series of injections are completed over several weeks to increase hyaluronic acid levels in the synovial fluid. Over a few months, patients can begin to experience less pain and better mobility with this and other treatments we offer at Wesley Chapel Spine and Sports Medicine for osteoarthritis in the knee joint.

     If you are suffering from knee pain and reduced mobility from osteoarthritis and want to explore options for relief without invasive surgery or pain medications come see us at Wesley Chapel Spine and Sports Medicine today to schedule a consultation.
