Visco-supplementation for Arthritis of the Knee:

Visco -supplementation for Arthritis of the Knee http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 This nonsurgical procedure is an injection of a gel-like medication into the knee joint to supplement or replace the thick synovial fluid that cushions the joint. This treatment can help reduce the pain of arthritis. Jacksonville Pain Physician

Injection:

Injection http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 In preparation for the procedure, the physician numbs the knee with an injection of local anesthetic. The physician carefully guides a needle through the numbed tissue and into the space within the knee joint. The physician may confirm the position of the needle with a fluoroscope, a special type of x-ray that shows moving images. Once the tip of the needle is positioned correctly, the physician injects the medication. This fluid will cushion and lubricate the knee joint.
