Hyaluronic Acid for Knee Pain
As we age and undergo the stress of continued use, our body’s synovial fluid can become depleted. This is especially true in the knees which are the body’s largest weight bearing joint. This can lead to a reduction in joint space resulting in loss of cartilage, swelling and discomfort as well a reduced strength and limited range of motion. This process results in a condition known as osteoarthritis of the knee, sometimes referred to as “wear and tear arthritis”.
In 1996, scientists successfully extracted, purified and concentrated the hyaluronic acid found within the rooster’s comb into a product used for the treatment and relief of knee pain.
It is now used as an alternative to surgery around the globe and has helped countless individuals regain their mobility and alleviate pain.
There are 4 critical components to the hyaluronic acid knee injection treatment system…
- Critical Component #1: Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is not a drug but a naturally derived substance. Hyaluronic acid knee injections relieve pain by lubricating and cushioning the knee joint. Hyaluronic acid is a natural chemical found in the body. It is present in a particularly high amount in joint tissues and in the fluid that fills the joint (also called synovial fluid). It is injected directly into the knee.
Hyaluronic acid knee injections work differently than oral pain medications. The knee injections do not pass through your bloodstream to work. Since the injections is injected directly into your knee, it does not cause stomach bleeding problems like some pain medications.
Hyaluronic acid knee injections can provide long-lasting pain relief for up to 6 months and be safely used for up to 30 months.
- Critical Component #3: Physical Therapy
The physical therapists at Naperville Rehab Clinic work closely with your needs. We avoid knee pain by compensating and altering gait. The physical therapists will correct your gait and strengthen your joints and muscles to help you return to a more active life.
- Critical Component #2: Advanced Fluoroscopic Imaging
Dr. Maghsoudi exclusively uses advanced fluoroscopic imaging to administer the treatment. This is the only way to allow the hyaluronic acid knee injection treatment to arrive inside the knee joint with pinpoint accuracy and deep inside your knee where the pain is coming from.
- Critical Component #4: Knee Bracing
Specialized knee braces will improve the decreased joint space from the wear and tear that occurs with arthritis. Once the brace is fitted, knee joint space is increased and the pain from being “bone on bone” decreased.
Together, these components produce effective results that may eliminate your pain and avoid unnecessary medications and surgery.
