How your knees work.
Your knee joint connects the upper part of your leg to the lower part. It’s what makes the human body able to move so efficiently. Where the femur bone of the upper leg meets the tibia of the lower leg is the kneecap. That’s where osteoarthritis can hit and hit hard.
The surfaces of your bones, inside the knee joint, are covered with cartilage. This extremely tough material, in turn, covers a space inside the knee which contains a fluid. This fluid serves as a lubricant. This is your knee’s “DW40”. It keeps your knees greased and operating efficiently.
Osteoarthritis quite literally robs you of that precious DW40. When this occurs, the cartilage is eventually degraded, resulting in the bones of your thigh and shin meeting, causing pain.
How Orthovisc Therapy works.
Sodium hyaluronate is the agent used in Orthovisc Therapy. It serves as a replacement for the DW40 osteoarthritis has robbed your knees of, restoring lubrication to your knee joint and getting you back that bounce you’ve been missing.
Under a local anesthetic, your knee is injected with sodium hyaluronate in a simple procedure that can restore the health of your knee joint for up to six months. Orthovisc Therapy is a highly effective treatment which replaces the need for anti-inflammatories and pain medication, so often prescribed for osteoarthritis of the knee. It’s fast, simple and surprisingly effective. By replacing your body’s natural DW40, Orthovisc Therapy’s primary benefit is immediate pain relief.
After three treatments (one each week), you’ll get your bounce back. Following a simple course of three Orthovisc injections weekly, frees you from the tyranny of ever-increasing doses of medications that can lead to liver damage and other complications.
