The Non-Surgical Knee Relief Program at Oconee Regenerative and Joint Institute in Watkinsville is a medical procedure during which a natural lubricating fluid is injected into the knee joint, called hyaluronic acid (HA) or hyaluronan.
- Hyaluronic acid is a key component of the joint fluid in healthy joints, but is found in lower concentrations in osteoarthritic joints. By adding hyaluronic acid to the existing joint fluid of an osteoarthritic knee, the goal is to:
- Facilitate better knee movement
- Reduce pain
- Stimulate the body to begin normal production of HA
Typical candidates for this Non-Surgical Knee Relief are people with knee osteoarthritis who have failed to improve with conservative treatments and wish to avoid total knee replacement surgery.
Following the first injection, patients are fitted with an offloading knee brace and engage in a rehabilitation program that includes gentle, progressive knee exercises. The rehabilitation goal is to improve range of motion and develop muscle strength to support the knee.
