Have Knee Pain?
After 6 months of hashing out the details, we are excited to announce that we are finally able to start performing Hyaluronic acid knee injections for anybody that is suffering from pain due to degenerative changes in their knees. This treatment has a long history of success but we have adopted a program consisting of injections (1 injection per week for 5 weeks), temporary knee braces, and weekly physical therapy (2-3 times per week for 8 weeks) that has been shown to be over 99% effective!* And to top it off, this procedure is covered by Medicare and other insurance companies, so for most patients, the whole program will be covered completely!
Think of Hyaluronic acid as the “juice for the joints.” Our joints are composed of this substance and by injecting them into the proper part of the joint capsule (using special fluoroscopic imaging), we are able to provide more cushion and support to these joints. If you are trying to become pain free and don’t want to do steroid injections (which are a temporary band-aid) or a more expensive invasive knee replacement, this might be the treatment for you!
Starting March 6, Dr. Cotter will be seeing patients to assess and start your treatment! Please see the attached study that was done for further explanation, or call to get a 10-minute free phone consultation with Dr. Cotter to see if you would be a good fit. Otherwise, we are taking appointments now so don’t delay! Give the clinic a call to get scheduled – 608-222-2700. And please, tell a friend!
