Viscosupplementation is a medical procedure during which lubricating fluid is injected into a joint. Also called hyaluronic acid injections or hyaluronan injections, it is most commonly used to treat knee and joint pain from osteoarthritis symptoms and will reduce pain and slow the joint deterioration.


Temporary Bracing


With OA comes a decrease in joint space, and therefore instability. Temporary bracing can give stability to the joint during the rehabilitation process, and when used together with viscosupplementation can increase the joint space to allow the fluid to set thus providing a better cushion for the joint.


Superb Rehabilitaion


Movement is the key to success. The less you move your knees, the weaker they can get. Our team is dedicated to showing you how to live an active lifestyle and physical therapy is key to overcoming your chronic knee and joint pain. Our program will provide you with the best level of care and help you manage your osteoarthritis symptoms.
