Joint Fluid Knee Therapy in Irving, TX
What is Joint Fluid Therapy?
If you have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis and you are experiencing knee pain then you might be a good candidate for joint fluid therapy knee injections (aka viscosupplementation aka hyaluronan injections).
In healthy joints, cartilage and synovial fluid provide the cushioning and lubrication your bones need to glide over each other properly. This helps reduce friction, absorb the shock of movement and protect bones from constant impact.
With osteoarthritis, cartilage starts to break down and the amount of hyaluronic acid (HA) within the synovial fluid decreases, causing it to become thinner. Gelsyn, Supartz, Durolane, and Genvisc are HA injections that help supplement the loss of joint fluid.
Safe and Effective
Gelsyn-3, Supartz, Durolane and Genvisc have shown to reduce joint pain and stiffness for up to 6 months, which can lead to an improved quality of life and may help delay total knee replacement surgery. These injections have been FDA approved for the treatment of knee pain due to osteoarthritis.
How are these administered?
Joint fluid therapy is administered by an injection directly into your knee joint once or once weekly for 3 – 5 weeks After completing a full course of treatment many patients begin to experience pain relief at 4 weeks and continue to feel the benefits for up to 6 months post injections.
Is Joint Fluid Therapy Right for Me?
If you are not getting enough pain relief from oral medications, and physical therapy and have been diagnosed with OA then you may want to consider joint fluid therapy prior to surgery. The more proactive you are treating OA symptoms the better the outcomes.
