The Simple Truth About the Importance Of Our Knees
Our knees are an incredibly important to our bodies in terms of them supporting all the daily activities that require weight bearing leg movements. The knee joints move in a variety of ways as they flex, twist and bend while tolerating weight which allows us to jump, run, walk, and dance to name just a few. Unfortunately, a knee injury or chronic wear and tear is an inconvenient and painful occurrence because the affliction frequently prevents us from taking part in our daily lives. Fortunately, natural injections can effectively remedy the pain and inflammation that arises from damaged cartilage, ligaments, and tendons in the knee.
Arthritis and Knee Injuries
A severe knee injury is likely to swell and cause pain while chronic arthritis disease is another reason for intense knee pain to occur. According to a report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults older than 65 years of age suffer from arthritis at a rate of almost 50 percent, which frequently sets off inflammation. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, and unfortunately, it can lead to degradation and swelling.
Both arthritis of the knee and serve injuries are treatable, but when considering knee injections remember different injections are used depending on the injury or cause of the pain and discomfort. Options include medications that decrease swelling and encourage healing as well as injections that loosen joints and block pain.
Knee Injections Recommended for Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis of the knee is a chronic condition resulting in pain and degeneration that affects millions of Americans. As an answer to this condition, a wonderful natural solution, of a Natural Knee Fluid Replacement Therapy was developed.
One such therapy is the Supartz Natural Knee Replacement Therapy. Supartz Natural Knee Replacement Therapy decreases inflammation and eases pain without surgery or replacement. Supartz therapy can help you in alleviating your pain, improving your mobility, and getting you back to your optimal activity level. Other benefits of this treatment option are that it is non-surgical as well as non-pharmacological.
How Does Knee Fluid Therapy Work?
Osetoarthritis negatively affects the quality of synovial fluid and therefore it’s ability to protect and lubricate the joint. The goal of knee fluid therapy is to supplement the poor quality of hyaluronic acid in your painful knee with additional highly purified hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronan is a naturally occurring substance that is found in the cartilage of joints as well as in the Synovial fluid (the fluid within the joints). In a healthy joint, Hyaluronan acts as both a lubricant as well as a shock absorber.
What Will I Experience During the Procedure?
Supartz or a Natural Knee Fluid Replacement Therapy consists of natural injections into the knee that are painless. Most often the injection is provided as an in office procedure.
The injection site will be cleaned prior to the insertion of the needle, and if the knee is swollen, then the doctor may extract fluid. The physician will then administer the injection. Patients should understand the risks that injection results will vary based upon the degree of damage inflicted to the knee. In addition, some treatments may include multiple injection sessions. The best recommendation is to schedule a consultation with your physical medicine physician so they may be able to answer any questions and put your mind at rest about concerns that you may have in regards to this simple and safe procedure.
