During a viscosupplementation procedure, the joint affected by
osteoarthritis, such as the knee,
is injected with hyaluronic acid. The HA acts as a lubricant and shock
absorber, mimicking the
natural synovial fluid found in healthy joints. The procedure is typically
performed in an
outpatient setting and can often be done in a healthcare provider's office.
Mechanism of Action:
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial
fluid of joints. In
osteoarthritis, the synovial fluid becomes thinner and loses its lubricating
injecting HA into the joint, viscosupplementation helps restore the
lubrication and cushioning
effect, reducing friction between the bones and alleviating pain.
Additionally, HA may have
anti-inflammatory and protective effects on the joint tissues.
Viscosupplementation for early osteoarthritis offers several potential
Pain Relief: Viscosupplementation can help reduce pain associated with
daily function and quality of life.
Improved Joint Function: By restoring joint lubrication and cushioning,
improve joint mobility, range of motion, and overall function.
Delaying Disease Progression: While not a disease-modifying treatment,
potentially slow down the progression of osteoarthritis in some individuals.
Minimally Invasive: Viscosupplementation is a minimally invasive procedure
that can be performed
in an outpatient setting, reducing the need for extensive surgical
Duration and Frequency of Treatment:
The duration and frequency of viscosupplementation treatment vary depending
on the specific
product used and the individual's response. Generally, a series of
injections are given over
several weeks or months. The effects of viscosupplementation can last for
several months, but
they may vary among individuals. Repeat treatments may be necessary to
maintain symptom relief.
