Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 07, 2012
Located just north of the High Five Interchange at 208 West Spring Valley Road, The Knee Center is now open and serving patients who suffer from pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee. The multidisciplinary staff at The Knee Center includes physicians and physical therapists who specialize in treating knee pain with a series of Hyalgan injections. This knee injection therapy works to lubricate the knee in such way that reduces friction caused by bone-on-bone grinding and helps patients return to normal activities pain-free without having to endure knee replacement surgery.
Hyalgan knee injection therapy represents a new medical breakthrough and is approved by the FDA to treat knee arthritis pain. Hyalgan is a naturally derived product that already exists in large quantities in joint tissues and joint fluids. Since it is a naturally derived substance it is not considered a drug and is associated with very few side effects. Mild swelling at the point of injection and mild irritation of the gastrointestinal system are the main side effects associated with this form of knee injection therapy.
The specialists at The Knee Center use ultrasound and video flouroscopy imaging technology in order to insure that the Hyalgan is injected with precision. When the substance is injected into the knee it provides an instant layer of joint lubrication. In many cases, the patient receiving the injections experiences immediate pain relief that can last for several months. When the pain returns, the patient can schedule another quick and painless injection at The Knee Center. This treatment is a viable option for those who are seeking relief from knee pain and who desire to avoid knee replacement surgery.
Knee injection therapy is covered by Medicare and most insurance plans. The Knee Center offers free screenings to new patients. The medical professionals at the clinic are knowledgeable and eager to address any questions or concerns patients may have regarding Hyalgan knee injection therapy.
