Viscosupplementation has been used in the medical industry for joint pain relief for the past 20 years. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first approved viscosupplementation in 1997 to treat mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knee. Apple Medical Centers has been using this treatment to help some patients avoid the unwanted treatments of ongoing, expensive drugs and invasive surgery with extended recovery times.
Many patients with osteoarthritis in the knee suffer with the following symptoms:
Osteoarthritis affects more than 30 million people in the United States annually. If left untreated, this condition can become worse over time and result in a loss of motion or even bone spurs. Let Apple Medical Centers help you before your condition worsens. Just a few minutes in our office could mean months of joint pain relief for you.

Viscosupplementation therapy uses a specialized and natural joint replacement fluid called hyaluronan. Hyaluronan is naturally present in the soft, connective tissues surrounding your joints. Our experienced medical staff will inject the fluid into the tissues surrounding your affected joint. The addition of this fluid will fill the knee joint, promote healing, and add stability to your joint.
Hyaluronan is a substance that can supplement the natural synovial fluid, a thick gel-like liquid that provides your joint lubrication. Synovial fluid helps cushion your joint and absorb the shock of walking, running, twisting, and turning. So the increased lubrication provided by viscosupplementation means better range of motion and less pain for our patients.
Hyaluronan is virtually identical to the natural synovial fluid in your joint. Since your joint is now depleted of its natural lubrication, it is less able to protect your bones and cartilage from even further damage and destruction. Because hyaluronan so closely resembles the natural fluid in your damaged joint, you’ll experience very few (if any) side effects.
Our medical staff will conduct a thorough initial examination on your first visit. We’ll take the time to listen to you, examine your painful areas, and determine the precise location and extent of your joint injury.
Viscosupplementation therapy injections are performed in our office in about 5 minutes. That means that you can come in for a quick appointment on your lunch break or even during a busy day. After your treatment, you are welcome to continue on with your normal daily activities.
During your viscosupplementation treatment, you will be asked to sit or lie down so the doctor can easily access your affected joint. We’ll clean your skin with a disinfectant solution to prevent infection, and you’ll be asked to relax your muscles.
Following the injection, you’ll be asked to move your joint to distribute the new fluid. Depending on your condition, additional injections may be needed over the course of several weeks. During this time, viscosupplementation therapy may also be supplemented with Physical Rehab and other rehabilitation remedies in between each scheduled treatment.
We can’t wait to help you start feeling better today!
