Hyalgan Injections for Arthritis and Joint Pain
Are you suffering from chronic pain and inflammation due to knee pain, osteoarthritis or arthritis? Living Well Medical is your trusted source for Hyalgan and knee pain injections in NYC to transform your osteoarthritis and arthritis. Injections of Hyalgan in NYC work independently and in conjunction with other treatments to optimize your wellness.
Hyaluronate is a naturally occurring substance within the knee. When this fluid is deficient, lubrication to move the knee joint is reduced, creating friction among associated anatomical structures used to move and stabilize the knee. Hyalgan works by infusing hyaluronate directly into the knee. It is not a drug, and can provide significant results over common pharmaceutical interventions for pain while remaining free of the side effects often associated with prescription pain relievers. Knee pain injections in NYC can offer almost immediate relief by replacing the lubrication that has been missing from the knee.
Because each patient's experience is unique, our caring doctor will determine the best schedule for your Hyalgan injection treatments. The number of treatments you need depends on a number of factors, including the degree of your osteoarthritis or arthritis. Most patients are able to enjoy results that last up to six months, but the results you see may differ from knee to knee. For example, you may need three knee pain injections in NYC each week in one knee before experiencing the full benefit that Hyalgan offers, while your other knee might experience less pain much sooner.
To prepare for your injection, we will swab the knee to first administer a local anesthetic to the area. Our doctor will then place a fluoroscope over the knee -- this provides an x-ray image to help us guide the Hyalgan injection to the appropriate area. A guiding dye will then be administered. The dye is used to be sure the needle has been positioned properly into the knee space. This needle will be replaced with one containing the Hyalgan, and Hyalgan will be injected into the knee to bond with synovial fluid, helping to cushion the joint.
Most patients report relief after their first treatment, but will become pain free after three. We continue your treatment based on your health history and how you're responding to each injection. If you are undergoing a rehabilitation program like physical therapy as a part of your wellness plan, Hyalgan can help increase and improve overall range of motion in addition to reducing your experience of pain. This allows you to achieve better results with your exercises at home.
If you experience daily pain that is setting you back, let us help you return to the activities you love most. Knee pain injections in NYC could be what's standing between pain and freedom. We look forward to seeing you at a visit soon.
