Treatment for Osteoarthritis of the Knees

Osteoarthritis of the knees is when the natural cushioning between the knee joints, known as cartilage, wears away. When this happens, the bones of the knee joint rub more closely against each other, resulting in pain, decreased ability to move, stiffness, and swelling.

While osteoarthritis can occur in young people, the chance of developing it rises after age 45. When it comes to treating osteoarthritis of the knees, the primary goal is to relieve pain and return mobility.

At Advanced Regenerative Medicine, we take pride in providing pain relief for patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. Our minimally invasive model involves a combination of knee-joint injections, physical therapy, and an unloading knee brace. Our treatment for osteoarthritis of the knees is also covered by AARP and Federal Medicare.

Viscosupplementation
Our healthcare professionals will administer GenVisc 850 by inserting a needle into the space in your knee joint. Patients treated with GenVisc 850 have been shown to experience improvements in knee pain. GenVisc 850 knee joint injections have been FDA approved since 2015 to treat osteoarthritis of the knees.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a critical component of the Advanced Arthritis Relief Protocol (AARP). It helps you find the balance of keeping your knee joints moving just enough so they’re strong and healthy. Our team will develop a custom treatment plan specific to the nature of your condition and your goals, which may include:
  • Muscle strengthening
  • Range-of-motion exercises
  • Manual therapy
  • Therapeutic modalities
  • Activity recommendations

Unloading Knee Brace

An adjustable unloading knee brace helps reduce the pressure on the kneecap and knee cartilage. This knee support device increases the joint space and allows the viscosupplement injection to work with greater ease. Unloading knee braces are highly durable and cushioned to avoid skin irritation from extended wear time.
Incorporating these components into a patient treatment program results in better overall patient recovery in treating pain from osteoarthritis of the knees.
