Knee Joint Injections

Hyaluronic acid knee injections are a popular and effective option for knee joint pain. Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid, a thick substance that retains moisture and keeps our skin, connective tissue, and eyes hydrated. When it comes to our joints, hyaluronic acid works like a cushion; it absorbs shock and allows joints to move smoothly over one another without grinding. Over time, our bodies produce less and less hyaluronic acid which results in dehydrated joints, tissues, skin, and muscles—and lots of pain. Arthritis and osteoarthritis also breaks down the body’s natural hyaluronic acid cushions, causing inflammation.

Dr. Adams at Progressive Integrated Healthcare Dallas injects hyaluronic acid based gel into your knees to supplement—and replace—your body’s lost lubricant. You will be able to feel the effects almost immediately and notice an immediate reduction in your knee joint pain. Depending on the individual, steroid injections or an anti-inflammatory injection may further improve knee joint pain and discomfort. Multiple injections over several weeks or months may be required to effectively eliminate the pain and inflammation of knee joints.
