Hyaluronic Injections a Viable Option before Seeing an Orthopedist

Millions of American adults are living with some form of knee pain, most common among them being osteoarthritis. This is a degenerative condition characterized by a systemic breakdown of the knee joint which often leads to cartilage loss. Most times, the pain can become so severe that it becomes too difficult for someone to even get out of bed and go to the bathroom.
Having extreme trauma localized in the knee can be a life-altering experience, especially since the knee is one of the most critical joints in the body. The most affected age range in the U.S. are those above the age of 65, where a whopping eighty percent have to cope with this debilitating condition.

Osteoarthritis isn’t the only ailment that can cause pain in the knees, other disorders like ligament injuries, meniscal tears, and knee osteonecrosis are also responsible for severe discomfort.
