RELIEVE KNEE PAIN DUE TO OSTEOARTHRITIS OR IF YOU NO LONGER GET PAIN RELIEF FROM CONSERVATIVE TREATMENT METHODS.
In people who have osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, the breakdown of cartilage gets worse over time, knee pain and stiffness may intensify and more frequent.
Visco-supplementation helps return proper cushioning and lubrication function to the knee joint, addressing knee pain at the source of the problem and providing relief.
The number of courses/injections is a decision you and your Dr. Snowball need to make. When it comes to duration of pain relief, each person is different.
The Question On Knee Replacement Surgery
New research from Mount Sinai Health System says these surgeries have limited effectiveness and can be economically unjustifiable when they’re done on patients with less severe symptoms.
Frequently Asked Questions
"My in going assumption was that all doctors who preach pain management are wacky. But after a heart surgery, I found myself unable to walk on my right side – related or not I don’t know. My right leg was very painful and I was very much favoring my left side. I really couldn’t walk. I was in need of help. My wife and friend had seen Dr. Snowball and recommended her. She diagnosed that my knees had lost a lot of the cushion in them – they were bone on bone. She recommended a simple procedure of a cortisone shot. I was still skeptical but I was desperate so I went along. Almost immediately I felt relief. Within a few weeks, I was walking normally again. I have friends who had similar issues and have opted for knee replacements. All I can say is that in the summer time when we are working on our boats, I’m the one who helps them up off the dock. "
