Lubrication Injection for Knee

Do you have osteoarthritis of the knee? Are you experiencing pain or stiffness in your knees? Or has your doctor already diagnosed you with a condition called “osteoarthritis of the knee”? If so, the information here will help you better understand osteoarthritis or “OA” and the various ways our clinic can help you treat it.

Understanding Osteoarthritis of the Knee

OA is a common condition that causes joints to become stiff and painful. Millions of people have this condition, so if you have been diagnosed with it, you are not alone!

OA causes the smooth cartilage that covers and protects the ends of your bones to break down. In severe cases, your cartilage thins so much that your bones may begin to rub against each other. The lubricating ability of the natural fluid in your knee diminishes, and the cartilage no longer cushions the joint as well as it once did. This results in stiffness, swelling, and pain that can make walking difficult.

Hyalgan Treatment: Helping You Live Pain-Free

HYALGAN is a kind of hyaluronate that is injected directly into your knee by your health care provider. HYALGAN is one of several hyaluronates that have been approved for the relief of OA knee pain. Hyaluronate is a natural substance found in high amounts in your body’s joint tissue and joint fluid. It acts as a lubricant and shock absorber inside the joint, enabling your knee to work properly.

What to Expect From HYALGAN Treatment

HYALGAN has been proven to provide long-lasting relief of OA knee pain. In a published clinical trial, 5 injections of HYALGAN given once per week for 5 weeks reduced knee pain for up to 6 months. Some patients experience pain relief after 3 injections given once per week.

  • Long-lasting relief of OA knee pain
  • Proven effectiveness in clinical trials
  • Typically administered in a series of 3 to 5 injections
  • Minimal side effects and non-surgical approach

The number of HYALGAN injections that you may need will depend on your condition and response to HYALGAN therapy.

Insurance Coverage

Treatment with HYALGAN is covered by many health insurance plans, including Medicare, most managed care organizations, and other third-party insurers.
