A Leading Treatment for Arthritis Pain in Your Knees

The prospect of dealing with ailing knees for the rest of your life is enough to slow down anyone. It’s even worse when that pain comes from osteoarthritis. The most common chronic knee ailment in America, osteoarthritis destroys the cushioning cartilage in your knee joint, resulting in bones rubbing directly against each other.

Thankfully, you have pain relief options available to you that don’t require total knee replacement. Known as viscosupplementation, this treatment reduces arthritis knee pain by injecting a FDA-approved hyaluronic acid gel-like substance that provides natural lubrication and cushion to the knee. This procedure is performed under image guidance utilizing a low-dose x-ray to ensure the “gel” is placed accurately in the joint space.
