Providing a five-week, FDA approved, non-operative approach to knee rehabilitation, our program is performed in the comfort of our office and only takes a few minutes each visit.
Also known as viscosupplementation, our knee therapy works by offering extra support for the hyaluronan naturally found in your body’s joints. This fluid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber. It allows the cartilage and surfaces of the bones to glide smoothly. These injections, applied directly to the joint bond with the body’s hyaluronan creating cushion and lubrication, which in turn, relieves pain, swelling, and joint inflammation.
Not only will we guide you through these five weeks by offering patient education, but you will also receive physical rehabilitation and therapeutic exercises to complete to improve your alignment and muscle stability surrounding the affected area. Exercise helps to keep your joints flexible and strong, which can lead to weight loss and even more relief on pressured joints. Every pound you lose takes 4 pounds of pressure off your knees and 6 pounds off your hips.1
While individual results will vary based on factors such as age, overall health and activity, and the condition of the joint anatomy, treatments usually consist of 5 weekly injections per affected knee and may be repeated every 6 months to 1 year depending on medical necessity.
