Osteoarthritis Knee

Symptoms, Causes, Treatments

The main symptom of osteoarthritis is pain. You may feel pain during movement, and even at rest. Some conditions will cause you to feel pain when you are sitting and some when you are standing. Your joints may also be stiff and swollen. You may even experience a loss of range of movement in the joint. This can have a profound impact on your health and interfere or stop you from your normal daily activities.

If you’re suffering from knee pain due to osteoarthritis, and 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 naturally. 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 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 if prescribed to support the maximum outcome.

Schedule a free consultation with one of our joint pain specialists today. Your joint pain specialist will examine your specific joint pain needs, and determine which treatment option would be best for your particular joint pain situation. A pain-free life is possible, and we would love to help you reach yours today.

    Dr. Jason and his team are the absolute best at what they do. I've been going to Discover Optimal Healthcare for more than 15 years now and they are the reason I'm able to do what I do day in and day out. For someone who suffers from chronic back pain, it would be impossible for me to be where I am today without their continued care and guidance. I'm forever grateful for all they've done and continue to do.

Everyone knows your name when you walk in. The office is super friendly and doesn't feel like an institution. The care is phenomenal! I'm so grateful to the doctors and staff for getting me the help I need to be pain-free! #beyondgrateful #discoveroptimalcare
