Knee pain affects people from all walks of life. From athletes who have suffered a sports injury, to laborers experiencing repetitive strain injuries, and those who are living with the effects of osteoarthritis. Until recently, surgery was the go-to knee pain treatment. However, surgeries are not without risk and don’t always produce lasting results. KneeVisc 5® is an innovative non-surgical knee treatment that can help people beat knee pain and go back to living life to the fullest.
Managing With Chronic Knee Pain
Chronic knee pain, marked by enduring discomfort, stiffness, swelling, or limited mobility, can stem from various sources. Osteoarthritis, frequently affecting older individuals and manifesting as pain and stiffness in both knees, is a common culprit. While mild knee pain can be managed with pain relief medication, severe cases may necessitate surgical intervention. However, surgical procedures carry notable risks, prompting the emergence of non-surgical alternatives like KneeVisc 5® for effective knee pain treatment.
KneeVisc 5®: An Alternative to Surgery
KneeVisc 5® is a knee injection therapy offering lasting pain relief without the risks associated with invasive treatments.
Traditional surgical methods can have many potential complications and issues, including:
- Infection of the surgical site
- Long-term stiffness caused by scar tissue
- Persistent knee pain following knee replacement surgery
- Long healing times during which you may be restricted from day-to-day activities
Our knee injection therapy is minimally invasive and works by injecting a natural lubricant into the joint. This means:
- Reduced risk of infection
- Return to normal activities more quickly
- No risk of scarring or long-term damage
KneeVisc 5® takes a systematic approach to treating knee pain. Your doctor will use advanced imaging technology to diagnose the source of the pain. Next, they’ll inject a lubricant called hyaluronic acid into the joint capsule. If required, they’ll also work to correct the alignment of the joint with physical therapy and bracing.
Finally, we’ll recommend an ongoing protocol of injections to introduce growth factors to promote tissue repair and restore the integrity of your knee joint. This is something that’s assessed on a case-by-case basis.
