Viscosupplementation

Payment: The physical injection part of the treatment is covered by MSP. The cost of the viscosupplement product used amounts to between $375 and $500 per vial, obtainable from any pharmacy or the Bill Nelems Pain Clinic.

Injections of hyaluronic acid, also known as viscosupplementation, are aimed at reducing joint pain and improving the functional condition of the osteoarthritic joint: in particular, the knee.

Hyaluronic acid is a viscous and elastic substance that is normally produced by the joint and that makes up joint fluid (or ‘synovial fluid’). The latter is rich in hyaluronic acid in its normal state, and its viscous properties lubricate the cartilage surfaces while its elastic properties protect them from shocks. In osteoarthritis, the synovial fluid is depleted in hyaluronic acid, making the cartilage more vulnerable to forces of friction and compression.
