Viscosupplementation is a fast and effective treatment for osteoarthritis, and it involves injections of a hyaluronic acid solution into the knee joint.


Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring fluid of the healthy joint that acts as a lubricant and helps bones move effortlessly while simultaneously providing shock absorption for joint loads. It also seems to act as an anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving agent.


Viscosupplentation injections are believed to stimulate the production of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid.
