One of the most common causes of knee pain is osteoarthritis. This can be very painful and potentially debilitating. Fortunately we have had tremendous success with the combining the use of Hyalgan with deep tissue laser therapy. Hyalgan is a solution of sodium hyaluronate. Hyaluronate is a natural chemical found in the body.
The knee joint is surrounded by a sack of fluid called synovial fluid. This fluid cushions and lubricates the joint. Sometimes as we age this fluid does not replenish as it did when we were younger. This creates greater friction and less lubrication to the joint resulting in knee pain.
The purpose of Hyalgan is to replenish this cushioning and lubricating fluid and to help eliminate pain. The laser is used to stimulate healing, eliminate swelling and reduce pain.
Hyalgan is injected directly into the knee once a week for 5 weeks. This treatment can be repeated in 6 months for up to 30 months if needed.
Hyalgan has been FDA approved since 1997 and has been safely used worldwide for 24 years.
It does not interfere with other medications you may be taking for osteoarthritis or other conditions.
Any type of side effect is extremely rare.
