Synovial injections, typically referred to as hyaluronic acid injections, become a treatment option when patients can no longer control the pain they are experiencing. These injections are mainly used for treating knee osteoarthritis, but can also be used for other joints such as the hip and ankle. Treatment usually involves one injection per week for three to five weeks. Our physical medicine in Oceanside is here to help you take control of your osteoarthritis.
