Hyaluronic Acid Viscosupplementaion Injections
The bones that make up your joints usually have a cap of cartilage on their ends which ensures the bones move smoothly against each other. This cartilage has a fluid coating that contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid works as a lubricant and shock absorber in your joint.
In osteoarthritis, the cartilage cap breaks down and the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases within the joint which can cause symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and swelling.
Viscosupplementation involves your healthcare provider injecting hyaluronic acid into an osteoarthritic joint.
Viscosupplementation is typically covered by an extended heath benefits plan. Each brand of injection has a pseudo DIN number for the insurance companies to recognize the product. Although these are injectables, the products are covered under the healthcare side of the plan rather than the pharmaceutical side.
