Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that deteriorates the protective fluid cartilage in the body’s bones and joints. While this condition can affect any bone or joint, osteoarthritis is commonly found in the knee. Natural aging and activity levels can reduce the joints’ protective cartilage and fluid; however, osteoarthritis speeds up the degeneration.

Patients with osteoarthritis experience chronic pain and frustrating symptoms:

• Aching
• Stiffness
• Muscle Weakness
• Inflammation
• Reduced Mobility

For patients not wanting to take part in painful knee surgery, the experts at Scott Medical Center offer Supartz Joint Therapy. This treatment restores the protective fluids in the joint or bone and helps to alleviate the painful symptoms.

About Supartz Knee Therapy
The Supartz injections are a safe, faster alternative to knee surgery. The injections contain a fluid that is naturally occurring in the protective fluid of the joints and bones—purified sodium hyaluronate. Supartz injections have helped many people to beat chronic knee pain and get back to a active lifestyle.
