Some of the most common joint pain issues we treat at Bodyworks Musculoskeletal Medicine are knee osteoarthritis/shoulder osteoarthritis, pain associated with walking up and down stairs, “cracking” and “popping” pain within the bones, and ankle, wrist, and hip pain.
For patients suffering from the pain and limited mobility associated with osteoarthritis.
During Viscosupplementation treatment, hyaluronic acid is injected into the joint to facilitate smooth movement of bones and to act as a shock absorber. Hyaluronic acid is a safe, natural substance. People who suffer from osteoarthritis have lower levels of hyaluronic acid around their joints, and injections of the fluid offer a nonsurgical treatment for the pain caused by arthritis.
For accurate placement of the hyaluronate the procedure is administered using fluoroscopy imaging, allowing the physician to see the exact point where the injected material is administered.
When combined with specialized physical therapy, Viscosupplementation provides safe, painless, and proven effective treatment for resolving chronic joint pain.

The healing mechanisms within your own body, such as stem cells, continually renew themselves to heal injuries you sustain. Serious injuries and aging can hinder your body’s ability to heal itself naturally. Regenerative medicine uses your own stem cells or blood platelets to boost natural healing of injuries, arthritis, and other chronic pain conditions.
