If you suffer from any degree of knee pain or are considering knee surgery, there is a non-surgical FDA-approved treatment now available at Advanced Wellness.
Viscosupplementation can reduce and even eliminate knee pain, and is covered by most insurance providers including Medicare. Under the guidance of a board certified physician, the team of experts at Advanced Wellness use ultrasound technology to insert injections into the knee joint, allowing more shock absorption and reducing pain and inflammation in the knee.
This new FDA-approved treatment is the answer to those who think surgery or prescription medications are the only options to eliminate pain.
How Do Knee Osteoarthritis Injections Work?
Our team of experts under the guidance of Dr. Gary Yen M.D. uses ultrasound technology to ensure the fluid is perfectly injected into the knee joint. The highly viscous fluid allows the cartilage surfaces of the bones to glide upon each other smoothly for more shock absorption thus reducing pain and inflammation in the knee.
Candidates for Knee Osteoarthritis Injections
These drugs are used to treat knee osteoarthritis pain in people who have not found significant relief of their symptoms from:
- Physical therapy
- Heat or cold
- Over-the-counter pain relievers
- Steroid injections
Side Effects of Knee Osteoarthritis Injections
Potential side effects of these knee osteoarthritis injections include joint swelling and pain. They can’t be used by people with skin or joint infections. In addition, most varieties are made from processed chicken or rooster combs and should not be used in people with egg or poultry allergies. Euflexxa, however, is safe to use in people with egg allergies.
What to Expect From Knee Osteoarthritis Injections
Treatment with knee osteoarthritis injections ranges from a one-time injection to weekly injections for three to five weeks. Pain relief is usually obtained by four to 12 weeks, and the effect has been shown to last for up to several months. The treatment can be repeated as necessary.
