Hyaluronic (HA) Knee Injections are used to treat pain in the knee due to arthritis. Hyaluronic acid, a substance found in normal knee joint fluid, lubricates the knee and acts as a shock absorber to keep regular movement paint free. An arthritic knee no longer has normal joint fluid and lacks the normal cushion and lubrication.
Osteoarthritis and similar conditions can result in:
- Your cartilage wearing away
- Bone spurs to develop
- Pain and loss of mobility
What is the process when receiving a Hyaluronic Acid Knee Injection?
The injections are given once a week for three weeks or as a single shot and can provide pain relief for up to 12 months or more.
Osteoarthritis damages the joint of the knee, leading to pain and a lack of mobility. The hyaluronic acid knee injection is one treatment option that helps you delay the need for surgery on your knee.
