Viscosupplementation Injections

Rockwell Physical Medicine LogoThese types of procedures involve injecting a hyaluronate into the joint space of the knee. This substance is a thick fluid that provides lubrication and acts as a shock absorber for the knee.

Often when knee joints get degenerated, the joint space shrinks and arthritic changes can happen causing a variety of symptoms including pain and loss of motion. These types of treatments can help decrease inflammation and allow the joints to glide more smoothly allowing for an increase in motion and decrease in discomfort.

You may have already tried other treatments for your arthritis, like over-the-counter pain medicines and corticosteroid injections. If you still have significant symptoms, viscosupplementation might be a good choice to help reduce your pain, stiffness, and swelling. The treatment seems to work best in people with mild or moderate arthritis. The treatment may particularly make sense if you are trying to delay getting surgery on your joint.
