Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage wears off causing pain, stiffness, and swelling that limits the movement of the joint. The knee injection consists of injecting a thick fluid into the knee joint. This fluid aims to reduce the symptoms and improve the movement of the knee.
Although its most popular application is on the knee, viscosupplementation treatment can also be applied to other joints such as the hip, wrist, and shoulder.
