FORGET ABOUT YOUR KNEE PAIN AND GET BACK TO YOUR FAVOURITE ACTIVITIES WITH VISCOSUPPLEMENTATION


Knee Osteoarthritis is just painful, can be frustrating and unpredictable. It can also get in the way of your plans. If exercise and over the counter pain relievers aren't enough, Viscosupplementation could help!

Healthy cartilage acts as a “shock absorber” and prevents your bones from taking the full impact of everyday walking, running, twists, and falls. A healthy knee also contains sufficient synovial fluid, a thick, gel-like liquid that reduces friction in the joint. A substance in the synovial fluid called hyaluronic acid acts as the joint’s “grease” and provides lubrication between bones and cartilage.

As cartilage begins to wear away and the amount of synovial fluid in the joint decreases, you may begin experiencing symptoms of OA. The most common signs of OA of the knee include:
  • pain at the joint
  • tenderness
  • stiffness
  • loss of flexibility

Over time and without treatment, the symptoms can become more severe, and the OA may cause loss of motion and bone spurs (bone growths around the affected joint). In most severe cases, the cartilage can disappear entirely.

Treatment options may ease the symptoms and possibly slow down the condition’s progression. Doctors may begin treatment with a very conservative approach, asking you to first try exercise, physical therapy, and even weight loss to reduce the pain and inflammation. If these treatments prove ineffective or are no longer effective as your OA worsens, doctors may need to consider more aggressive and less invasive treatments that provide greater relief. 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. Hyaluronic acid fills the joint area and increases lubrication in the joint, making movement much easier even slowing the degeneration process.
