Knee Pain Relief at Eastside Medical Group in Cleveland
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and affects millions of people each year. It is the gradual wear and tear of the cartilage at the end of a person’s bones. Many patients who experience this pain try mild painkillers and physical therapy to get relief. However, sometimes that is not enough.
Knee pain that is caused by osteoarthritis can now be treated with a non-surgical, drug-free solution – Hyaluronic Acid Knee Injections.
Hyaluronic Acid Injections are a joint fluid therapy that uses a solution consisting of all-natural, highly-purified sodium hyaluronan. This fluid is already found in the body and is a common component of connective tissues and fluids found in the joints of the knee.
Hyaluronic Acid Injections have been around since 1987 and are the most commonly used joint fluid therapy in the world. It has been used millions of times since its introduction and is very effective. There are only a handful of minimal side effects which have been reported. These include joint pain, back pain, injection site pain and headaches. No anaphylactic reactions have been observed in any patients.
How does it work?
Hyaluronic Acid Injection joint therapy is injected once a week into the knee for three to five injections. After each injection, the patient should avoid vigorous activities such as jogging, tennis, heaving lifting or standing for extended periods of time. After the injections have been completed, the patient should feel relief from the pain and discomfort caused by osteoarthritis.
We combine the Hyaluronic Acid knee injections with a combination of comprehensive exercises, chiropractic care, massage, and CORRECT knee bracing to achieve maximum results with our program!
