What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Your body makes hyaluronic acid. It’s a natural part of the fluid that helps lubricate and cushion your joints and keeps them working smoothly.

What does the injection do?

When you have osteoarthritis (OA), the hyaluronic acid in the affected joint thins. Hyaluronic acid injections add to your body’s natural supply. You may hear your doctor refer to these injections as “viscosupplementation,” which literally means they help the fluid in your joints.

Depending on which type your doctor uses, you may get a single shot. Or you’ll get three to five injections spaced a week apart.

The injection is given the same way for all types: 

First, the physiotherapist cleans the area. If your joint is swollen with excess fluid they will insert a needle into the joint to withdraw the fluid. Then, with the same needle still in place, the physiotherapist can usually inject the hyaluronic acid directly into the affected joint.

Note: After an injection, you shouldn’t do hard weight-bearing activity for one or two days. Otherwise, you should be able to resume normal activities.

Should you try Hyaluronic Acid injections?

Doctors can’t predict who will benefit from hyaluronic acid injections, with many giving them mostly to people with knee/hip/OA whose symptoms don’t get better with painkillers or non-drug treatments such as heat or ice.
Hyaluronic injections are also often tried by people who can’t take painkillers like acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin), or naproxen sodium (Aleve) or can’t have (or aren’t ready for) joint replacement surgery.
