What to expect with your HYALGAN® treatment
HYALGAN® injections give you long-lasting relief of osteoarthritis knee pain
- HYALGAN® can provide long-lasting pain relief for up to 6 months
- HYALGAN® can be safely used for up to 30 months
HYALGAN® is a safe choice
HYALGAN® is not a drug. Its principal component is a naturally derived substance called hyaluronan that relieves your pain by lubricating and cushioning your knee joint. Hyaluronan is a natural chemical found in the body and is present in a particularly high amount in joint tissues and in the fluid that fills the joint (also called synovial fluid). HYALGAN® is injected directly into the knee.
HYALGAN® injections work differently than oral pain medications. HYALGAN® does not pass through your bloodstream to work. Because HYALGAN® is injected directly into your knee, it does not cause stomach bleeding problems like some pain medications.
- HYALGAN® does not interfere with any other medicines you may be taking for osteoarthritis or other conditions
- HYALGAN® has been shown to be safe for repeat treatment in a 30-month study
HYALGAN® has been safely used for 24 years worldwide. Approximately 38 million injections have been given.
Decompression Knee Bracing
Our clinic offers Medicare approved prefabricated and custom decompression knee braces for the treatment of osteoarthritis and degeneration in the knee.
- The DonJoy OA Lite brace is malleable to allow further load adjustments with thigh and calf paddles to mitigate hinge rotation
- Pre-loaded hinge (up to 6° of correction) incorporates flexion and extension control
- Arthritis friendly with reinforced strap ends, thigh grip, and pull loops
- Breathe-O-Prene® fabric eliminates skin irritation and provides comfort by wicking away moisture
