These can be referred to as “Rooster Comb Injections” because in the early days, hyaluronic acid was extracted from the cartilage of a rooster comb. Hyaluronic acid is a building block of cartilage, but also acts as a lubricant and shock absorber when injected. This not only helps keep cartilage healthy, but can ease the pain in the area because of the lubrication effect. The Hyaluronic Acid Injection is FDA approved for knee pain, which is incredible for anyone who may be struggling with knee pain. We can also use it for other joints.
Hyaluronic Acid Injections decrease inflammation, accelerate cartilage and joint healing and also block pain receptors.
We really like how affordable this treatment is so even those who suffer from ankle or shoulder pain can receive this treatment to overcome their pain. We love that this has the dual effect of healing the area, and immediately decreasing the pain because of how this treatment lubricates the joints.
These injections are incredibly successful for patients who suffer from osteoarthritis, and anyone who suffers from joint pain.
