Hyaluronic gel injections for knee arthritis
The results of hyaluronic acid injections for knee osteoarthritis vary with each patient. Some people experience complete relief from knee osteoarthritis symptoms, while others receive partial relief or no relief.
The injection technique for administering hyaluronic acid in the knee is called intra-articular injection. The term intra-articular injection refers to an injection given directly into the joint capsule.
The injection procedure takes a few minutes and usually does not involve any prior preparation. It is however advisable to discuss the medical history and current medications with the doctor prior to this treatment.
