Viscosupplementation is a procedure where a hyaluronic acid solution is injected into an arthritic joint. When the synovial fluid that naturally surrounds the joint isn’t doing its job, this solution provides cushioning and mimics the fluid’s lubricating action. This kind of treatment quickly relieves pain (often within a week) and significantly improves mobility, with results generally lasting for several months.
Dr. Hobeychi, podiatrist uses ultrasound to guide the injections, thereby making them more precise and effective while reducing patient discomfort.
Shock wave technology has been indicated to treat a variety of conditions, including heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, tendinopathy, and chronic injuries. The administration of radial shock waves to injured tissue causes inflammation that stimulates the healing and scarring process. In general, three to six treatments are required.
