We take a non-invasive approach to treating Chronic Arthritic Pain
Over time, osteoarthritis affects a number of the population. This is most common form of arthritis, and it occurs when the cartilage between two joints wears away, causing the bones to rub against each other. Without this natural cushioning, many people experience chronic pain that affects their daily lives. While this condition can occur in any joint of the body, it is most often found in the knees.
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 Midwest Healthcare and 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.
