Knee arthritis is characterized by the swelling and weakening of the cartilage in the knee joint. Knee arthritis can be a painful condition, but with the proper treatment, pain-free living is possible! 

At ViscoGenTM, we believe surgery is always the last option. That’s why we’ve developed a comprehensive, non-surgical approach to knee pain to help patients avoid surgery and find long-lasting relief. Let us examine the symptoms of knee arthritis, the dangers of not treating knee arthritis, and the knee pain treatment offered by ViscoGenTM in Orlando.

Signs and Symptoms of Knee Arthritis

Some of the signs and symptoms of knee arthritis include:

  1. Swelling and tenderness: Swelling may be more noticeable when you wake up.
  2. Pain: The pain may begin slowly and appear suddenly over time. Pain may be more apparent when you stand up, sit down for an extended period, climb stairs, or walk on a flat surface. The pain will periodically get better or worse, depending on the weather.
  3. Crepitus: You may hear cracking or creaking noises when straightening or bending the knee due to the friction of bone and cartilage. 
  4. Limited range of motion: The deterioration of the knee joints can make it difficult to stand up, walk and move the knee.
  5. Knee deformities: The knee can become deformed as the disease progresses.
  6. Skin redness around the joint. 
  7. Knee locking: As damage to the knee occurs, it can become unstable and starts to give way.

If left untreated, the symptoms of knee arthritis will continue to worsen over time. While arthritis is not fatal, it can lead to severe pain and discomfort. Arthritis does not shorten your life expectancy, but it can significantly affect your quality of life if untreated.

While arthritis does not lead to paralysis, it does make it harder to move your knee over time. If left untreated over a long period, you may require a total knee joint replacement.

Knee Arthritis Treatment: KneeVisc 5®

KneeVisc 5® is an FDA-approved, non-surgical injection treatment plan designed to reduce pain and increase a patient’s quality of life far beyond what most treatments can provide. KneeVisc 5® uses an all-natural lubricant to coat the knee joint, allowing it to move more smoothly. In addition, since this knee arthritis treatment plan is non-surgical, there is less downtime and no need for anesthesia. As a result, patients can return to their everyday life with ease. 

How Does KneeVisc 5® Work? 

Step 1: Advanced imaging: The key to treating knee arthritis is to diagnose the problem with pinpoint precision. With advanced imaging, you and your doctor can see a live view of what’s going on inside the knee. The doctor will explain what is causing the pain and how to remedy the situation.

Step 2: Applying all-natural lubricant: Using advanced imaging technology, the team of doctors will apply Hyaluronic acid (an all-natural lubricant) for better mobility. 

Step 3: Bracing and alignment: Bracing can be an effective way of reducing and redistributing pressure from the worn areas of the knee joints. Therefore, our medical team will diligently and carefully work to realign the knee joint before evaluating the need for a long-term brace.

Step 4: Promoting continuous natural healing: Our all-natural injections work to enhance the continuous natural healing of the knee joints.

Step 5: Strengthening the joint: Our team works diligently to develop a strengthening program unique to each patient. These treatments can be done at home or in our training and rehabilitation facility.
