How Can Hyaluronic Acid Help You Avoid a Knee Replacement?

If you’re suffering from chronic knee pain due to osteoarthritis, you may be considering having knee replacement surgery to relieve your pain. But, did you know that knee replacement surgery is not your only option?

With studies showing that up to 1/3 of knee replacements are not actually medically appropriate, and most knee replacements only lasting 10-15 years, more and more people are looking for second opinions and alternative treatment options.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan, is a substance that our bodies naturally produce to heal, cushion, and lubricate its own parts. The highest concentrations of HA are naturally found in the eyes, joints, and skin. Over the past few decades, scientists have found many benefits of HA in healing and cell repair. It is now used for several health and medical purposes.

The FDA has also approved the use of hyaluronic acid (HA) injections as a non-surgical solution for treating osteoarthritis (OA). This has been scientifically shown to provide pain relief for many patients, without the risks and dangers associated with other treatments (i.e. joint replacement surgery).

A Safer Alternative to Joint Replacements

By using a substance that the body naturally produces to heal itself, we are able to provide a safer and less invasive solution for chronic joint pain relief. The joint specialists at Flexogenix® have developed two revolutionary techniques to relieve chronic joint pain: Knee-Flex 5-Step and VisCare-Flex®.

The Knee-Flex 5-Step protocol was developed to comprehensively treat osteoarthritis in the knees - without having to undergo risky surgery. It takes the very latest FDA approved, non-surgical knee pain treatment, and enhances it to provide a level of results that few others can match. The Knee-Flex 5-Step system provides both rapid pain relief and a substantial increase in mobility, so you can get back to your active, healthy lifestyle. Unlike the temporary relief of steroid injections, Knee-Flex 5-Step can provide long-term relief so that you can break free from the vicious cycle of knee pain.

VisCare-Flex® was designed specifically to treat shoulders, elbows, wrists, ankles, and hips, making risky and invasive joint replacement surgery completely unnecessary in many cases. Similar to the Knee-Flex 5-Step protocol, VisCare-Flex® uses sophisticated image guiding technology to inject the hyaluronic acid precisely at the best location to ensure improvement to the joint and surrounding cartilage. After the injection, mobility and pain relief increase over time.

Because hyaluronic acid is naturally produced within the human body, people almost always tolerate it well, with very few potential side effects. When used with the Knee-Flex 5-Step protocol or VisCare-Flex®, we can provide a safe, effective method for improving joint function without surgery.
