Non-Operative Therapy for Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the leading causes of disability in the United States. It is a degenerative joint disease that produces pain, stiffness and other disruptive symptoms. In its early stages, arthritis of the knee is treated with nonsurgical methods, such as weight loss, medications, physical therapy or corticosteroid injections. When these methods have failed to relieve your pain and restore your mobility, viscosupplementation is another conservative treatment option that may help.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial fluid surrounding joints. It acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for your joints. People with osteoarthritis suffer from a lower-than-normal concentration of hyaluronic acid. Therefore, the goal of viscosupplementation is to improve movement and reduce pain by injecting hyaluronic acid into the arthritic joint, which is most often the knee.

This treatment technique is not effective for every patient with arthritis. We will determine if viscosupplementation is best for you. You can trust that Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians offers a full range of osteoarthritis treatments, both non-surgical and surgical, to ensure you find a solution that eliminates your pain and helps you return to the high-functioning lifestyle you deserve.
