Viscosupplementation for Early Osteoarthritis

Viscosupplementation for Early Osteoarthritis

A method known as viscosupplementation involves injecting hyaluronate, a viscous fluid, into the knee joint. Viscosupplementation will not reverse knee osteoarthritis because there is no known cure for the condition.

When the cartilage that protects the knee’s bones begins to deteriorate, osteoarthritis of the knee results. Damage, swelling, and pain come from the bones rubbing against one another. Smooth but durable tissue, cartilage avoids injury by preventing the bones from rubbing against one another. Currently, exercise therapy is advised as the first course of treatment. It is described as a routine or plan of physical exercises created and prescribed for particular therapeutic purposes.

Your healthcare professional will administer hyaluronic acid injections into your joint as part of the viscosupplementation therapy for arthritis. Your arthritic joint may experience less pain and swelling thanks to this viscous fluid (most commonly, your knee). The ends of the bones that make up your joints typically have a cartilage cap.
