Defined as the deterioration of the cartilage and protective fluids in the joint, osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is often caused by typical wear and tear during the aging process, but injury to the joint could also result in this condition. At Chiropractic Medical Center, we offer Supartz natural knee replacement as a treatment option to those suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee. Supartz injections have proved beneficial to patients no longer responding to traditional pain medicine, and are an alternative to more invasive knee surgery.
With Supartz natural knee replacement, a solution of purified sodium hyaluronate is injected directly into the affected joint. This solution, also found within the body naturally, replenishes the lost protective fluid and cushions the joint. Patients who have undergone Supartz injections are able to immediately resume their physical activities.
In addition to Supartz natural knee replacement, we offer a number of other services to strengthen your joints and improve mobility.
