Ankle Injections

 

 

WHAT IS IT?  Hyaluronic acid , also known as viscosupplementation injection or rooster comb injection, is used for the treatment of knee, hip, shoulder, elbow and ankle osteoarthritis. Currently it is only FDA/insurance approved for the knee, although studies are currently been performed on all other joints. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that is normally present in healthy cartilage. In unhealthy or arthritic cartilage, the levels of hyaluronic acids are lower. These injections can help control pain, provide lubrication, and replace hyaluronic acid in the joint. The injection also stimulates your joint to make more of this important molecule.
