Hyaluronic acid (aka rooster comb) can be injected into the knees to treat osteoarthritis. The medication acts to replenish the hyaluronic acid that is naturally in the knee to provide shock absorption and lubrication for the degenerative joint.
Patients receive 1-5 injections, depending on which medication is used, in weekly intervals. Patients can experience pain relief for 6-12 months in most cases. Injections can be repeated every six months as needed.
