Knee osteoarthritis is a common condition among older adults. As we age, joint tissues wear down and become inflamed. Disease, physical inactivity and injury can worsen the degeneration, which may feel unmanageable. Fortunately, Motus Integrative Health provides the insight you’re looking for. Our mission is to further your health through innovative treatments. Hyaluronan injections, also known as Euflexxa, are highly effective at easing the pain caused by knee osteoarthritis. Discuss Euflexxa with our nurse practitioner, Stephanie Re, at a consultation.
When you’re faced with chronic pain, learning to manage your symptoms is impartial. Pain caused by knee osteoarthritis can make it difficult to walk, stand and generally function in your daily life. Most patients have sought various treatments to no avail, in which we recommend hyaluronate injections. Euflexxa is often recommended to patients who haven’t responded well to other treatments, including pain medications, exercise, lifestyle changes or physical rehabilitation.
Euflexxa is an injection that contains a 1% sodium hyaluronate solution to minimize swelling, stiffness and pain. These injections are administered directly into the knee joint for maximum efficacy. Many patients report reduced pain within several treatments. Sometimes, improvement is seen after a single injection, while multiple treatments may be necessary in other cases. Our chiropractors can answer all of your questions regarding your specific circumstances.
Euflexxa injections involve a minimally invasive procedure that are done right in our office. The process is done using local anesthesia to minimize discomfort, as well as procedural side effects. You may experience swelling around the injection site for several hours following the appointment. We also advise patients to avoid putting their knee under physical stress for at least 2 days following the procedure. Many patients require at least 3 injections to see the full benefits.
There are many chronic pain conditions afflicting the knee, including arthritis. Euflexxa is a leading choice among health professionals to reduce symptoms of osteoarthritis in the knee, which is joint inflammation that is caused by degenerating tissues that cushion the bones. An osteoarthritic knee means the soft tissues have been worn down, leaving little to prevent friction between the bones and the resulting pain. Euflexxa works by replenishing the knee’s lost hyaluronic acid, which lubricates and protects the joint tissue and bones.
