What exactly are Knee Gel Injections?

Knee Gel Injections, or viscosupplementation, involve administering Hyaluronic Acid (HA) directly into the knee joint. This process helps restore the natural balance of synovial fluid in the knee. This improves lubrication, reduces pain, and enhances mobility. 

 Unlike oral analgesics or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that affect all body parts, this therapy explicitly targets osteoarthritis in your knee.

Is this the same as SUPARTZ?

SUPARTZ is a name brand of Hyaluronic Acid Injection therapy. Some other name brands for this treatment include Euflexxa, Hyalgan, ORTHOVISC, Gelsyn-3, Healon, Provisc, and Bionect.

All American Medical offers SUPARTZ as well as alternative hyaluronic acid injections.

SUPARTZ may or may not be covered by your insurance; our staff will make the proper inquiries to determine the extent of your coverage.

What conditions can Hyaluronic Acid Treat?

Our specialized knee injection treatment is designed for the specific condition of Knee Osteoarthritis. If you’re struggling with knee pain due to osteoarthritis, you may find relief with repeated courses of hyaluronic acid injections.

Extensive research shows HA Injections are effective in treating Knee Pain

An analysis of existing studies and surveys, published in the February 2016 volume of Seminars in Arthritis and Rheumatism1, found that:

  1. This treatment can reduce pain and improve function for up to 40 months, including 12 months after the last injection cycle.
  2. Many patients who receive HA injections also find that they need less pain medication – up to 50% less.
  3. Repeated HA injections may delay the need for total knee replacement (TKR) surgery by around two years.

Every patient is unique, and individual results may vary. However, the evidence from these real-life studies is encouraging and suggests that Knee Gel Injections are a safe and effective option for many people with knee osteoarthritis.

Who should consider Hyaluronic Acid for Pain?

Hyaluronic Acid is a great non-invasive solution for those suffering from chronic knee pain and seeking alternatives to surgical intervention. This treatment is particularly suited for:

  • Individuals looking for swift improvement in knee functionality and pain relief.
  • Patients who are experiencing constant knee pain for several months.
  • Those who haven’t achieved sufficient relief from lifestyle modifications or physical therapy.
  • Persons looking for an alternative to surgical procedures for knee pain management.
  • Individuals aiming to reduce or eliminate the reliance on strong prescription pain medications.

How long do Knee Gel Injections take?

The Knee Gel Injection process is quick and efficient. It typically takes less than an hour from start to finish. 

The minimal downtime means most patients can return to their daily activities shortly after receiving the treatment. This makes it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.

The Hyaluronic Acid Injection procedure at All American Medical

The viscosupplementation process begins with thoroughly evaluating your knee’s condition to ensure this treatment is right for you. Then, in a comfortable setting:

  1. The targeted area of your knee is cleansed and prepared for the injection.
  2. Hyaluronic acid is delivered into the knee joint to enhance lubrication and reduce pain directly at the source.
  3. Following the injection, the natural properties of hyaluronic acid aid in improving joint function and reducing inflammation. 

Patients often report significant improvements in knee mobility and a reduction in pain. enabling a return to daily activities with enhanced ease and comfort.

How long will Knee Gel Injections provide Pain Relief?

Knee Gel Injections typically offer relief lasting up to six months. However, it depends on the individual’s response to the treatment. 

Some patients might require a series of injections, spaced over a period of time, to achieve lasting relief and joint function improvement.

Post Hyaluronic Acid Injection recommendations

After receiving a Knee Gel Injection, it is recommended to:

  • Limit strenuous activities for at least 24-48 hours to allow the knee to rest.
