If you suffer from chronic knee pain due to osteoarthritis or degeneration of the cartilage in the knee joint, you may have been prescribed pain medication or supplements or you may have even been told that an artificial knee replacement is recommended to relieve your knee pain and regain mobility in that joint.
But now, a non-surgical knee therapy called viscosupplementation therapy can provide hope and relief for those suffering from knee problems.
Avoid painful and costly surgery with viscosupplementation
Over 100 million Americans currently suffer from chronic and severe knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. The FDA has cleared viscosupplementation after numerous studies and trials as a non-surgical, knee joint pain treatment.
Viscosupplementation is minimally invasive, requires no surgery and can provide immediate results with little-to-no recovery time.
About the viscosupplementation procedure
Certain clinics that perform the viscosupplementation procedure use real-time X-ray guidance to pinpoint problem areas in the knee with extreme accuracy. With decades of experience in treating knee pain, Bailey Health Solutions in St. Augustine, Florida, is proud to offer this treatment option.
Using a real-time X-ray, called fluoroscopic guidance, hyaluronic acid gel is injected into the knee. Then, the gel bonds with naturally occurring joint fluid, known as synovial fluid, to create a lubricating and cushioning layer that prevents painful friction in joints and bones. It also allows for smooth, pain-free movement, reducing pain, inflammation and swelling of the joint after a series of five knee injections, administered one week apart.
In terms of discomfort, the treatment feels much like getting a flu shot, and patients typically report little pain. At Bailey Health Solutions, patients are given an unloading knee brace to assist in proper distribution of the medication after treatment. The knee brace serves to unload stress off the knee joint, which allows the gel to effectively reach problematic areas faster.
Viscosupplementation is covered by most insurances
This highly effective, non-surgical chronic knee pain therapy is also covered by most insurance carriers, including Medicare.
The purpose of clinics like Bailey Health Solutions is to provide patients with the most effective and affordable integrative care in a clean and modern environment using the latest in new technology.
