Do you have Osteoarthritis in your knees but not ready for a Knee Replacement?? Have you heard of Hyaluronic Acid??

Knees contain synovial fluid, which is responsible for

  • absorbing shock
  • lubricating the knee joint
  • anti inflammatory effect

Changes in synovial fluid and  joint degeneration can lead to Osteoarthritis in the knee joint.

Hyaluronic acid (synvisc, cingal, viscosupplements) is a major component of synovial fluid and can provide relief from OA knees with a single use injection. Combine this with physiotherapy, exercise prescription and lifestyle changes and osteoarthritis can be well managed.
