Joint fluid therapy with Synvisc is an injection into an arthritic joint without normal joint fluid. The injection provides extra lubricating fluid, which reduces pressure on the nerves and alleviates pain. This type of therapy may be necessary when existing joint pain causes so much tension in the joint that the body’s nutrient-rich water cannot reach the area to naturally heal it. Patients with arthritis, bone spurs, cysts, and other bone-on-bone joint conditions may receive joint fluid therapy.
The board certified physicians at Torrance Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group are experts at administering this specialized treatment. Because we are highly skilled and extensively trained, we can effectively determine which patients may benefit the most from joint fluid therapy injections. Our patients benefit by being able to put off having surgery or avoid it entirely, and the minimally invasive procedure lets them return to health quickly.
