The Center for Joint and Spine Relief offers innovative non-surgical treatment for osteoarthritis. One of the excellent, time proven options for the treatment of the knee osteoarthritis are the hyaluronic acid injections, “joint lubricant,” “joint gel injections” or “rooster comb” injections. Hyaluronic acid is a natural chemical that acts as a lubricant to enable bones to move smoothly over each other and as a shock absorber for joint loads. With advancing arthritis in the knees, there is less hyaluronic acid present in the cartilage and joint fluid. Injections help restore a more normal joint environment, resulting in less pain and better function. This is FDA-approved gel for joint injections. The doctor administers 3 cushioning gel injections to the arthritic joint, utilizing ultrasound-guided imaging to ensure exact needle placement.
