Here’s what you need to know about Knee High Molecular Weight (HWA) Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Gel Injection treatment
This treatment is primarily used for knee osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint condition that causes pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. The injection of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid gel aims to improve joint lubrication, reduce friction, and alleviate symptoms.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body’s joints, cartilage, and synovial fluid. It acts as a lubricant and shock absorber, helping to cushion and protect the joints. In knee osteoarthritis, the natural production of hyaluronic acid may be reduced, leading to joint deterioration. The injection of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid gel supplements the existing hyaluronic acid in the joint, improving its function and reducing pain.
The Knee High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid Gel Injection is performed by a qualified healthcare professional. The knee joint is prepared, and a sterile needle is used to inject the hyaluronic acid gel directly into the joint space. The procedure is typically quick and relatively painless, often done on an outpatient basis.
This treatment aims to provide symptomatic relief from knee osteoarthritis. The high molecular weight hyaluronic acid gel helps to restore joint lubrication, reduce pain and inflammation, and improve joint mobility. It may also contribute to the preservation of the remaining joint cartilage and delay the need for more invasive interventions, such as joint replacement surgery.
The specific treatment course will depend on the individual’s condition and the healthcare professional’s recommendations. In general, a series of injections spaced over several weeks is recommended to achieve optimal results. The effects of the treatment can vary, with some individuals experiencing immediate relief while others may see gradual improvement over time.
After the injection, it is important to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by your healthcare professional. This may include avoiding strenuous activities or weight-bearing exercises for a certain period and applying ice or taking pain medications as needed.
