Tired of living with disruptive pain and stiffness from knee osteoarthritis? It may be time to consider knee gel injections. In cases where conservative techniques like medication and physical therapy fail to provide adequate pain relief, knee gel injections – also referred to as hyaluronic acid injections or viscosupplementation – may be a viable treatment option.
How do knee gel injections work?
Knee gel injections involve injecting hyaluronic acid into the intra-articular space of the joint. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring joint fluid that can provide much-needed cushion and shock-absorbing properties in an arthritic knee. For some patients, knee gel injections facilitate more comfortable joint movement, helping them to live a more active lifestyle with less pain. The treatment process typically involves a few injections that are administered about a week apart.
