Hyaluronic Acid Joint Injections

About Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA) injections are used to treat osteoarthritis and improve the functions of joints. It also can reduce compression around peripheral nerves to allow regeneration. During a hyaluronic acid injection (viscosupplementation), a small amount of HA, often just 2 mL, is injected directly into the joint. For nerve compressions, utilizing ultrasound guidance, HA is injected around and proximal to the compression zone of the  nerve needing treatment.  


The goals of treating JOINTS with hyaluronic acid injections are to:  


  • Reduce pain

  • Improve joint movement by increasing joint lubrication and reducing joint friction and inflammation

  • Slow osteoarthritis progression


The goals of treating NERVE COMPRESSION with hyaluronic acid injections are to:


  • Reduce the compressive forces onto the nerve

  • Provide a barrier to the exposed nerve, allowing it to heal

  • Improved nerve flow and regeneration

We use the brand Euflexxa for our hyaluronic acid injections. Euflexa requires a series of 3 injections each 1 week apart. No post procedure restrictions. For more information on Euflexxa, click here
