Viscosupplementation Injections and Osteoarthritis Treatment Programs

Effectively Treat Osteoarthritis

Viscosupplementation InjectionsViscosupplementation injections are a fast and effective osteoarthritis treatment, and it involves injections of a hyaluronic acid solution into the knee joint.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring fluid of the healthy joint that acts as a lubricant and helps bones move effortlessly while simultaneously providing shock absorption for joint loads. It also seems to act as an anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving agent.

Viscosupplementation injections are believed to stimulate the production of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid.

Viscosupplementation and You

At AESM, we have administered viscosupplementation to relieve pain in many of our patients, and we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss your candidacy for the treatment. Depending on the source and resulting issues of your osteoarthritis, your AESM team member may suggest a treatment program that includes not only viscosupplementation but also physiotherapy and custom knee bracing.

Osteoarthritis Treatment Program

Many athletes who suffer from this degenerative disease do not need surgery to properly manage their osteoarthritis symptoms. At Athletic Edge Sports Medicine, we offer a customized program to suit your exact needs and goals. We are dedicated to helping you take control over your osteoarthritis, and to help you play to your full potential.
