Hyaluronic Acid Knee Injections in Dallas and Grapevine: As we age and the body undergoes the stress of continued use, the body’s synovial fluid can become depleted. This is especially true in the knees, which are the body’s largest weight-bearing joint. This can lead to a reduction in joint space resulting in loss of cartilage, swelling and discomfort as well a reduced strength and limited range of motion. This process results in a condition known as osteoarthritis of the knee, sometimes referred to as “wear and tear arthritis”. Until recently, the primary arthritis treatments for osteoarthritis of the knee were limited to corticosteroid injections, physical therapy, knee replacement surgery or simply learning to live with the pain and frustration of a mobility-limited lifestyle.
At Core Integrative Health, the team offers hyaluronic acid knee injections as a non-surgical, comprehensive approach to knee pain.
Knee Injections at Core Integrative Health
Hyaluronic acid is not a drug but is a natural chemical that is found within the body. It is present in a particularly high amount in joint tissues and in the fluid that fills the joint (also called synovial fluid). Hyaluronic knee injections work differently than oral pain medications. Knee injections do not pass through the bloodstream to work. Hyaluronic acid knee injections are injected directly into the knee, so it does not cause stomach bleeding problems like some pain medications. Hyaluronic acid knee injections can provide long-lasting pain relief for up to 6 months and can be safely used for up to 30 months.
