Patients who are suffering with knee pain or want to improve knee function, have discovered relief with Viscosupplementation. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring lubricating substance (found in joint fluid) that acts as a shock absorber. Hyaluronic acid (gel-like fluid) is also known as Hyaluron or Hyaluronate. During Viscosupplementation, Hyaluronic acid (Hyalgan) is injected into the knee joint to help reduce pain, swelling and inflammation, and improve mobility.
Injections are generally administered in a series over several weeks. For some, the benefits can be immediate and last for up to six months or longer.
If you are suffering with Osteoarthritis Knee Pain, this safe and effective, injectable lubricant (Hyalgan) which is often covered by insurance, is available at Manalapan Spine Care and Rehabilitation. Please call Donna Carollo, our Office Manager at 732-972-5900 to learn more about this breakthrough treatment option or to schedule an appointment.
