Osteoarthritis, a leading cause of disability in the US, creates pressure and friction in the knee by eroding the joint’s cartilage and depleting its lubricating fluid. This pressure and friction, in turn, can result in extreme stiffness and pain for the sufferer and may eventually cause a significant loss of mobility. With viscosupplementation injections, our Total Health team of professionals can help get you back on your feet to increase your level of daily activity.
In this style of holistic and noninvasive therapy, hyaluronic acid is injected into the knee’s joint to replace the lubricating fluid that has been lost. Not only does viscosupplementation treatment alleviate the pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis, it may also slow the progression of the disease and possibly even stimulate a patient’s body to once again produce its own hyaluronic acid.
If you are experiencing a decline in mobility due to the discomfort of osteoarthritis, but do not want to undergo surgery or depend on prescription medication for relief, please contact the Total Health team for an evaluation.SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION
