What is Viscosupplementation (Hyaluronic Acid Injection) ?
Hyaluronic acid injection (HA) is actually one of the components of the natural lubricant fluid in the human knee joints. However, in osteoarthritic knees, the concentration and molecular weight of HA had been reduced and hence affecting its function as a joint lubricant, shock absorber. In Singapore, we conduct viscosupplementation to inject Hyaluronic acid into affected joints to improve conditions of osteoarthritic knees.
How do Hyaluronic Acid Injections Help?
Hyaluronic Acid Injection (HA) aims to restore the favourable synovial fluid composition present in the healthy joints. In Singapore, Viscosupplementation is an effective treatment of mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knees, alleviating the pain, reducing friction and ultimately, improving the function of the knee joint. This allows the patient to remain active and participate in proper physiotherapy and rehabilitation. When performed appropriately, Viscosupplementation in Singapore can help to delay the needs of surgery (Total Knee Replacement) in Singapore.
