Genvisc 850 Hyaluronic Acid is an injectable treatment designed to alleviate symptoms of knee osteoarthritis. It contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in joint fluid, which aims to improve joint lubrication, reduce pain, and enhance mobility in individuals with osteoarthritis-related knee discomfort.
Genvisc 850 is injected directly into the knee joint space to supplement the diminishing levels of hyaluronic acid. By restoring lubrication and cushioning in the joint, it may help reduce friction, alleviate pain, and potentially improve the overall function of the knee.
Genvisc 850 is generally recommended for individuals diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis who have not responded well to other conservative treatments like pain medications or physical therapy. It is best suited for those experiencing knee pain, stiffness, and reduced joint mobility.
The treatment involves a series of injections directly into the knee joint space. The number of injections and the interval between them may vary based on the individual’s condition and the healthcare provider’s recommendation.
Common side effects may include temporary discomfort, swelling, or mild pain at the injection site. Serious side effects are rare, but it’s important to discuss potential risks with your healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure.
Results from Genvisc 850 injections can vary. Some individuals experience improved joint lubrication, reduced pain, and increased mobility, allowing them to engage in daily activities more comfortably. However, not everyone may achieve the same level of relief, and outcomes should be discussed with a healthcare professional.
