Visco supplementation

VISCOSUPPLEMENTATION

  • If all other treatments prove ineffective or are no longer effective as your osteoarthritis worsens, doctors may need to consider more aggressive treatments.
  • In the search for less invasive treatments that provide greater relife, researchers discovered the benefits of lubrication injections, or viscosupplementation.
    Viscosupplements are doses of hyaluronic acid that are injected into the knee and into the synovial fluid. This is a relatively new from of treatment for knee osteoarthritis.
    Viscosupplementation has become more pouplar and more widely accepted, and is being used to treat symptoms of mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knee.

How Viscosupplementation Works

HOW VISCOSUPPLEMENTATION WORKS

  • People with osteoarthritis of the knee have lower levels of hyaluronic acid in their synovial fluid. The fluid that does remain in the joint is often thinner and less effective than fluid in healthy joints. It is not able to protect the cartilage and bone from grinding and damage as efficently as it once could.
  • For each does of a viscosupplement, a doctor injects hyaluronic acid (also called hyaluron or hyaluronate) into the knee joint’s synovial fluid.
  • The additional hyaluronic acid fills the joint area and increases lubrication in the joint, making movement much easier. Researchers also think that the injection of hyaluronic acid may stimulate the body to produce more of its own hyaluronic acid, which will further cushion the joint and make the effects of the injections last longer.
  • Viscosupplementation is ideal for people who have mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knee. It may be especially useful for people who have not responded to osteoarthritis treatments, such as physical therapy, weight loss, pain relievers, and corticosteroid injections.
