Arthritis & Pain Relief

Viscosupplementation aka "Rooster Comb, Gel Injections"

The knee is composed of three bones, the femur (thigh bone), the tibia (shin bone) and the patella (knee cap). The ends of these bones that move about each other have a layer of cartilage, which forms the surface of the joint.  The lining of the joint produces synovial fluid which is composed of hyaluronic acid.
In arthritis the cartilage layer is progressively destroyed by mechanical factors and inflammation.

Knee Injections

The knee joint is is lined by a balloon-like layer called the capsule which is lined by synovium.  Contained within this structure are the ends of the bones on the femur and tibia and their corresponding cartilage.  Injection therapies are directed toward these structures and soft tissues within the knee.

Hip Injections

The hip joint is composed of the femoral head and the acetabulum.  There is a capsule that surrounds this joint and within the capsule resides the cartilage and labrum.  Injections therapies may be directed toward pain relief from pathology affecting these structures.

Shoulder Injections

The shoulder joint is composed of multiple structures and can be complex to determine where your pain is coming from.  There are multiple areas that may cause pain such as the glenohumeral joint, acromioclavicular joint and the subacromial space.  An injection therapy may be directed toward one or multiple of these targets depending on your needs.
