In the past, knee surgery and pain medicine were the only treatments available to decrease or alleviate the pain associated with osteoarthritis. Fortunately, these are no longer the only options. In fact, at Valley Physical Medicine, we offer Supartz joint therapy to address this serious condition and allow our patients to return to their routine activities.
With Supartz joint therapy, our healthcare professionals will inject a purified solution of sodium hyaluronate directly into the affected joint. Because sodium hyaluronate is a natural substance found in the body’s cartilage, this allows increases lubrication in the knee—which, in turn, relieves the pain. Injections only take a few minutes, but our patients report that the results are long lasting.
