Knee pain is a common occurrence amongst adults in the United States. In fact, nearly 26 percent of all adults in the U.S. report suffering from chronic knee pain. If you dig a little deeper, you will see why this number may be even higher. Nearly 60 percent of all adults suffering from chronic pain admit that they will not report this to a medical professional!
There is no need to suffer in silence. Knee pain is a part of many adults’ lives, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. If you are suffering from knee pain and you would like pain relief without drugs or surgery, Hyaluronic Acid Gel injection therapy is your answer. These gel injections are a solution of Hyaluronan, which is a lubricant and shock-absorber found in all of our joints. Osteoarthritis reduces your body’s ability to produce Hyaluronan and thus allows the joint to wear out. These gels replace the naturally-occurring Hyaluronan, which your body no longer produces. In addition to Hyaluronic Acid Gel, we also offer Peptide, an FDA approved arthritis rejuvenating product. In conjunction with Gel injections, Peptide will increase Hyaluronic Acid by as much as 10 times. A study of 384 patients found that 94% reported 50% or higher pain reduction.
The injection procedure is just as important as the product itself. At Discover Optimal Healthcare, we use a Fluoroscopic arm (live imaging) to determine the precise location of injection ensuring an optimal outcome. In addition, we may use an arthrogram (a series of images) after the injection with a contrast medium or “dye” to clearly see what is going on in the joint. Lastly, as an integrated medical facility, we do more than just injections. We also offer Physical Therapy and specialized bracing to maximize patient outcomes.
If Knee Pain is preventing you from living a normal lifestyle or keeping you from enjoying the activities you love, do not jump directly to knee surgery. There are alternatives that are non-invasive with much shorter recovery times. Schedule a free consultation with one of our joint pain specialists today.
