Gravity plus past injuries and add 20+ years to the mix and you have a good reason why most adults suffer with advancing knee pain from degenerative osteoarthritis. This condition is one of the most common reasons for knee pain. It’s also progressive and the main reason why so many people end up with total knee replacements. So it makes much sense to try and extend the life of your joints whenever possible, but unfortunately, there are very few things that will help you do that. (One of them is stem cell therapy.)
This is why we’re super excited to be offering a new therapy called TriVisc® for our knee pain patients. TriVisc® is the next generation of hyaluronic acid supplements and is designed specifically for combatting degenerative arthritis in the knees. If you’ve had stem cell therapy in the past and want to extend the life of your results, TriVisc® is the answer. If you couldn’t afford stem cells, this new therapy may be the key to help you put off future surgery. Keep reading to learn more here….
TriVisc® is made of hyaluronic acid; this is the main component in fluid that helps create the space inside your knee joints. In osteoarthritis, the connective tissue slowly deteriorates and so does the fluid, eventually creating the painful ‘bone on bone’ condition. TriVisc® basically adds more fluid to the joint space and this also acts to lubricate it, so many patients also experience better range of motion as well as pain relief.
The main benefit of TriVisc® however is it’s ability to slow down the progressive degeneration. Just like the off-loading knee braces we recommend, TriVisc® acts to temporarily blow up the size of the joint, taking pressure off a progressively thinning space. The results of TriVisc® are temporary and last ~6 months, at which point most patients get another round. By doing this every 6 months, patients can often put off surgery and prolong the life of their knees by preventing deterioration.
At Solutions, we are excited to now be offering this therapy. The great news is it’s covered by most health insurance plans! It also has virtually no adverse effects; it’s very safe, and nearly completely natural (the hyaluronic acid has been minimally manipulated).
