Hyalgan Knee Therapy in Sarasota

Treatment for Chronic Knee Pains

Hyalgan is a viscous solution. It contains absolved sodium hyaluronate in physiological saline. It is used in viscosupplementation.

In this therapy, hyaluronate is injected into the joint to supplement the viscous properties of synovial fluid. This treatment is called viscosupplementation. Injected viscosupplement provides greasing and helps to cushion the joints to reduce friction that occurs with movement. In osteoarthritis patients, synovial fluid loses its lubricating properties and viscosupplementation aims to restore those properties.

How Does It Work?

Hyalgan knee therapy is usually used for the patients who have not found noticeable improvements from other treatments such as physical therapy, exercise or NSAIDS. Hyaluronate is the same substance that naturally occurs inside the joints. It acts as a lubricant and a shock absorber in the joint. It helps the knee move smoothly and helps lessen the pain. Hyaluronate knee therapy is used to treat knee pain and inflammation in osteoarthritis patients.

Is Hyalgan Knee Therapy safe?

Hyalgan is directly injected into the knee so it does not go through the bloodstream or cause stomach bleeding issues.
