Patients often suffer from joint pain when standing or stiffness after waking up from sleep or after prolonged sitting. This treatment is ideal for patients looking for relief from joint pain from bone on bone conditions and who want to avoid surgery.
Viscosupplementation is used to successfully treat mild to moderate cases of osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, and shoulders. It is a lubricating cushion injected between the rubbing bones, thus minimizing the pain and discomfort of osteoarthritis.
Viscosupplementation interacts with very few medications, does not require any sedation, and is as simple as getting a shot. Patients with diabetes and other serious illnesses respond well to this treatment. It is non-invasive enough that most patients drive themselves home or return to work the same day after treatment.
