Ultrasound Guided Hyaluronic Acid Injections
Within every healthy joint there is protective cartilage and synovial fluid.
With increasing wear and tear, the cartilage becomes worn down and the bones can become damaged. Within the synovial fluid is a substance called hyaluronic acid, and it’s the key for maintaining healthy joints. It is a type of glycosaminoglycan, which is a long chain of sugars that helps to retain water and promote lubrication to joints. By injecting it into the cavity around the joint it can slow the breakdown of synovial fluid. This means it can decrease your symptoms and alleviate the pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis.
Each course of natural injection therapy can provide relief for up to 9 months or longer.
