Joint Fluid Therapy for Knee Pain
Most patients suffering from chronic knee pain and inability to perform physical activities will find relief and enjoy the benefits of Supartz® joint fluid therapy, including patients who have previously undergone surgical procedures or physical therapy programs and are in search of improved results. Patients with limited joint mobility will also experience recovery of lost faculties and will more easily readjust to physical activity over the course of their Supartz® cycle.
The knee is a joint that supports a great deal of body weight and is in constant movement. The knee’s naturally-occurring synovial fluid provides shock absorption and lubrication to the joint to help maintain healthy function and mobility. When the synovial fluid becomes diluted or dried out because of trauma, imbalances or arthritis, the knee is left vulnerable to the negative effects of constant pressure and movement without the protective qualities of synovial fluid, stimulating the knee’s pain receptors. Supartz® is a natural hyaluronic acid solution, which mimics the exact components of synovial fluid and is injected directly into the synovial cavity with the aid of an ultrasound device to replenish lost fluid. Supartz® has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid in the market, which translates to a shorter treatment cycle compared to other available joint fluid therapy brands, making it the best option for long-term pain relief and arthritis symptom control.
Living Well Medical also offers various
types of joint fluid therapy treatments that are prescribed for patients who
suffer from other types of knee injuries aside from the ones treatable with
Supartz® injections. A consultation with our pain management doctor will assist patients in determining the root cause of pain and the best
course of treatment. For additional

Supartz® treatments are uncomplicated and take only a few minutes. While the patient is comfortably seated, our pain management specialist utilizes a high-technology ultrasound device that produces a live image and allows the doctor to precisely locate the synovial cavity, where Supartz® will be deposited via syringe. A cold compress may be applied following treatment for the patient’s comfort. Each week the doctor will analyze and assess the patient’s progress, which will in turn determine the number of treatments required. The effects of Supartz®, which include improved mobility, comfort, and eradication of pain, last approximately six months to one year with no recurring symptoms.
